About A. Lanternier
Lanternier was founded in the 1870s. Alfred Lanternier worked for Wedgwood, England before taking over the family porcelain business in Limoges in the 1890s, around the time this vase was made. In the 1920s, Lanternier porcelain embraced the new Art Deco style, winning the jury’s ‘Grand Prix’ in the Paris Arts Deco exhibition of 1925. The factory went on to produced porcelain for the prestigious design studios, Pomone (Au Bon Marché), and La Maîtrise (Galeries Lafayette).
