Alexandre Marty (1876-1943) was an artist working with Camille Fauré in Limoges from 1919. Fauré’s designs were extremely popular luxury goods, and flowers such as those seen on this vase were a favourite. It is an earlier piece as it conforms to Fauré’s designs rather closely, in the ‘Art Nouveau’ style; by the end of the 1920’s, Marty was creating extraordinary Art Deco pieces, and he parted ways with Fauré in order to do so in 1925.
