Georges Jouve, set of three sconces
Georges Jouve (1910-1964)
set of three sconces
Set of three ceramic sconces. Each sconce is made of a ceramic piece with two different sizes concave lobes. This part is in white ceramic with a black cracked glaze. Inside these two lobes, a different enamel color: green and peacock blue, green anise and clearer blue, red and green. This rhythmic game of colors is highlighted by the different kind of enamel : smooth or rough. So, the light reflects differently. A black line on each sconce follows the edges of the shape. Each piece in perfect original condition is signed «Jouve» with the «Alpha» cypher on the back.
