Frederic Danton Vase: French Art Nouveau period two-handled ceramic vessel by Frederic Danton, circa 1900. Wonderful iridescent glaze with butterfly motif.
French born Frederic Danton (b. 1874), who was employed as a designer at the Aubusson tapestry manufactury, founded a small ceramics factory in the village of Got-Barbot in Limoges @ 1900. Using molds and glaze formulas obtained from Clement Massier, he produced small productions of lustreware that closely resembled Massier's work with Levy-Dhurmer. The "A.S.B." designation on the bottom of Danton's works may reference one of the skilled artists he employed.
