A Vase by Paul Follot (1877-1941)

England c. 1911

Originally trained as a sculptor, Follot became one of the preeminent figures in European decorative arts of the first half of the 20th century, designing silver for Christofle, carpets for the Savonnerie workshops, ceramics for Wedgwood and ultimately, highly regarded furniture for his own company.

This vase was produced for Wedgewood and is an early example of his distinctive incorporation of fruit and flowers with linear neo-classicism, a style which came to the fore in his decoration of the celebrated Pomone pavilion at the 1925 International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Art.

We know that the ‘necessary’ alone is not sufficient for man and that the superfluous is indispensable for him, otherwise let us also suppress music, flowers, perfumes... and the smiles of ladies!
— Paul Follot
