This is a beautiful pair of antique Lefront art pottery vases. The vases are superbly crafted and decorated with a wonderfully done floral motif. Each vase has a squared off form with concave sides. The hand painted floral decoration is exceptionally bold with a richly textured surface. Each vase is mounted on an ornate base with an intricate design and bold figural feet. This pair of French art pottery vases would be a striking addition to any collection. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE FAIENCE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Theodore Lefront began working with faience and porcelaine in an atelier in Fontainebleau in 1860. He had several apprenticeships with various other porcelain ateliers until opening his own in 1872. Numerous exposition medals were awarded Lefront between 1866 and 1884 for his pieces.
