French Modernist Cubist Trio of Musicians designed by Primavera
Item #2823 SOLD
A trio of cubist musicians designed by Primavera very rare. Sold in France circa 1930′s, this group can really swing. Unusual juxtaposition in size, cubist details executed in a cream ceramic with accents in silver enamel. They even have just a touch of the stylized black jazz musicians, a scene that was very popular and documented in France during this period. Each piece is signed on the bottom Primavera, France. They make a great display since each piece is slightly different in size and fine details: Drummer, Guitarist (Django), and Saxophone player (I think that is the big berry sax). Lot of sensitive details to design and capturing the feeling of the period! They go great with some Cole Porter and a dry martini!
Designed by Sigsmond Olesiewica (later known as Jean Olin) Atelier Primavera or design firm that was on the cutting edge during the deco period. Worked with many of the great French designers and department stores like Printemps, Pomone for Bon Marche.
