This exceptionally well-made piece is by French ceramist Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat (1844-1910) who essentially worked around the late 19th century. The singularity of this oval-shaped vase resides in its three hooked-styled handles, which clearly appeal to the Art Nouveau trend. The vase's collar slightly opens up whilst its body embraces various shades of copper-red, deep green and dark blue. The technique of the "grès flammé" is widely used by Dalpayrat on different pieces. The somptuosity of this peculiar work bears witness to the talent of Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat, one of the greatest ceramists of the Art Nouveau era, according to his contemporaries, who awarded him many medals during World Exhibitions.
