Sold, Thank You.
Extremely rare Art Deco ceramic sculpture by Louis Lourioux and Charles Lemanceau, circa 1920. In excellent original condition. This unusual work measures roughly 16" in length and 11" in height (41cm by 29cm). It bears two signatures: the Louis Lourioux signature with the faun playing the flute, and Charles Lemanceau's signature. In my experience buying ceramics by Louis Lourioux this is a unique work, featuring his trademark magnificent enamels together with the iconic Art Deco sculpture of Lemanceau. An interesting aside: the relationship between Louis Lourioux and Charles Lemanceau lasted beyond the grave, since Lourioux' tomb in the Foecy cemetery is decorated with a Lemanceau sculpture.
