Japanese Style Planter by L'Escalier de Cristal

About

Signed H.P for Henri Pannier Lovely hexagonal shaped planter in patinated bronze with gold highlights. Adorned on one side with a dragon framed by a rhombus frieze on an openwork background. It is framed by six uprights showing branches embellished with cherry blossoms topped by three butterflies. It rests on dragon’s paws. “L’Escalier De crystal”, an old and famous Parisian firm, specialized in glass products and ceramics but also suggested furniture and bronze sculptures. It was led from 1885 to 1923 by Emile Pannier’s sons, who gave the name of Pannier Frères to the society, located at the corner of Scribe street and Auber street, next to the new built Paris Opera house. Their Japanese style creations were among many others much appreciated by the critics and the public. They were awarded many medals at various exhibitions, such as the Gold Medal at the 1900 Paris Universal Exhibition. Lots of artists participated in that world success, such as Emile Gallé, who gave to Pannier Frères the exclusive rights of some of his models, or François-Eugène Rousseau, who designed many vases and gave the model of his successful Japanese style dining-set as well. This set was made by the Creil et Montereau Manufacture. In the Japanese style furniture branch, many famous makers such as Majorelle from Nancy, Edouard Lièvre or Gabriel Viardot worked for Pannier Frères. Some pieces are to be seen in the greatest museums: the Ermitage in Saint-Petersburg, the Orsay Museum in Paris, the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. The Maison “L’Escalier De crystal” was sometimes the exclusive owner of the models and then those pieces were just signed by “L’Escalier De crystal” or sometimes beside the artist signature. But “L’Escalier De crystal” was also very creative, completing pieces with superb gilded bronzes, glass or enameled panels and often including authentic Japanese or Chinese elements.
