Antique Gros Relief Barbotine Vase- Ecole D'Auteuil Paris

This antique French barbotine vase has ornamentation of four foliate stems of gros relief roses in varying colors and stages of maturity. There are bas relief flowers and foliage that make up the rest of the floral display which is on a graduating color ground of beautiful pale to medium blue. We believe this vase was either an Edourd Gilles or LeFront. Without a signature on the bottom, we cannot be certain, but it was definitely an 'Ecole D'Auteuil Paris' creation.


Edouard Gilles owned and operated his own shop in Paris from 1868-1882.  He was one of only a few who fabricated, designed and painted French barbotine.  The forms and their decoration, much of it in high or gros relief, are of an extreme variety.  He was known for his magnificent artistic interpretation of flowers in an extremely difficult medium and technique. He was especially known for his exceptional floral reliefs.  Few pieces remain unrestored today due to the fragility of the relief of decoration.  Some of the largest pieces of gros relief barbotine were executed by Edouard Gilles’ atelier.

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.

 Condition:  Very good antique condition.
