This very handsome Denbac French pottery miniature urn/vase stands 2.5" high by 2.25" in diameter. It has a handsome octagonal form. It is glazed in an oatmeal under glaze, with a random blue drip glaze, which randomly covers the sides, giving the oatmeal under glaze a grayish tinge. It is unmarked, but guaranteed to be a vintage Denbac form. According to Jason Jacques website (a great informative art pottery site), Denbac founder René Denert began producing ceramics in his workshop in 1908 and licensed his firm in 1909. Running the business with his wife, he produced pieces under his own name 'Denert'. In 1921, R.L. Balichon joined Denert. Their joint atelier, known as Denbac, handcrafted high-fired stoneware with distinctive micro-crystalline glazes that have a velvety feel, and a subtle range and gradation of color. Denbac wares were sold in Paris and exported to England and Switzerland. The factory ceased production during World War II (1939 - 1945), then reopened for a few years before permanently closing. This very handsome miniature octagonal vase is in mint condition, no apologies. It has an awesome glaze, you will not be disappointed.
