Pierre d'Avesn (1901 - 1990) pair of art deco "honeycomb" vases
Pierre d'AVESN (1901-1990) was a sculptor who produced Art Deco models and decorations industrially in press-moulded art glass. He studied at the School of Decorative Arts in Paris at the time when François Decorchemont was teaching there.
René Lalique hired him at 14. He remained in his business for 10 years before settling on his own. He will work with the Cristalleries Saint Rémy to produce pieces in his own moulds. From 1928 to 1934, he worked at Daum (Verrerie Belle Étoile de Croismare) as a decorative artist to develop the production of molded, pressed and blown glass. He will sign them Davesn/Lorrain.
These flared vases are decorated with honeycombs. They are signed, traces of wear and tear on the base.
