Bayeux Tapestry Lustre Vase by Mesnil Bavent studio, Normandy, 1920s
Imposing French art pottery vase almost certainly by René Émile Brenner (1889-1942)).
Brenner produced superb pieces closely reflecting scenes from the Bayeux tapestry, which tell how William the Conqueror won the battle of Hastings and the English throne in 1066. It’s executed in brilliant blue, yellow and rust against a beautiful copper lustre background. A last transparent glaze gives the vase a lovely oily finish – but makes it difficult to photograph!
