Légumiere (covered vegetable dish with presentation underplate), c. 1925

Not on Viewexpand_more

This imposing légumier (covered vegetable dish) by Bizouard was featured in the French Silver Section of the 1925 Paris Exposition (Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes) from which Art Deco derives its name. As a showpiece, it was intended to forcefully demonstrate that French silverwork was beyond compare. Its strong sculptural form, immaculate surface and ivory accents epitomize the spirit and elegance, the very essence, of La Mode Parisian. It was made by Tétard Frères and retailed through Fouguet-Lapar of Paris.
