Longwy Art Deco French Cloisonné Ceramic Vase

Item #3302

An Art Deco “Ceramic Cloisonne” vase by Longwy from the early 1930s. This is an exceptional example from the Longwy pottery works with its lavish use of gilded enamel, and its unusual octagon shape along with the classic use of contrasting blues- both the cobalt and turquoise colors that this maker is famous for. While typical Longwy pieces are most often floral patterns, this is a striking geometric design.


Longwy is the name of a town where three countries meet. Part of France,it nearly borders Belgium and Germany and the techniques and advances in pottery in the early part of the 20th Century were shared by these three countries . The faiance factory at Longwy began in 1798 and developed it’s iconic style of craquele (crackle finish) and cloisonné in the late 1800s. Borrowing the concept from ancient Chinese and Japanese Cloisonné which is created with the use of metal bands which form the outlines with enamel colors filling in.,Ceramic Cloisonné duplicates this by making deep lines in the surface of the clay piece and then coloring each section with rich color before firing. Outstanding pieces were created in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Eras.


Longwy is well known for perfection in the detailing of the cloisonne execution  as exemplified bythe design of this beautiful vase.
