The lid of this French Art Deco covered jar or bonbonnière by J.J. Lachenal is incised and glazed in the Orientalist (Iznik) style. The stepped-design jar has a rich orange glaze and mottled blue and white interior, and sits on a fancy foot. It is 6” (15.2 cm) across and about 4 ½” (10.8 cm) tall. The piece is in excellent condition and dates to the 1920s.
Along with his brother Raoul, J.J. Lachenal was heir to the pottery established by his father, Edmund Lachenal, who was a leader in the French art pottery movement in the Art Nouveau era. After working in his father’s pottery, J.J. Lachenal was mobilized and seriously wounded during World War I. Afterward, he set up his own kilns, which employed 20-30 wounded veterans (“The Wounded of the Lachenal Studio.”)
