jean dunand vase

This signed Jean Dunand vase in red lacquer on metal found at ArtCurial in Paris is this weeks object of desire. Dunand (1877-1942) is considered to be one of the best metal workers and THE best lacquer artist of the Art Deco period.  His high-quality and highly fashionable work was (and still is) in great demand by private clients.  Oooolala.  Fabulous!
