A french vase made by whom ?? - ID = P. D'Avesn
« on: April 03, 2022, 02:44:49 PM »
Happy Sunday to all!
I have had this nice purple vase since quite sometime and only recently did I notice that there is a faint marking, rather difficult to see. I can read quite well the second part of the writing: "Made in France". Hower the name of the manufacturer is only partially visible. With some fantasy I could read Daum....but it does not seem their style, nor have I seen this signature before.
The vase is mould glass (mould lines are clearly visible) and it is 19 cm tall.
Can somebody identify this marking?
Thank you !!
Andrea

I think it is P. (Pierre) D'avesn, another French maker, there are other examples of their work online.

Stunning vase!  Conjures up amazing vintage plisse evening gowns and avant-garde design.

Perhaps that's where Issey Miyake derived inspiration :)
