Denbac ceramic liquor decanter, turquoise blue and brown | France 1920s
A charming Denbac ceramic liquor decanter. This little carafe with stopper is made in the Art Deco period in the 1920s. But it has an exceptionally beautiful Art Nouveau design with understated elegance. The flaming glaze is typical for the Denbac, with its bright turquoise and dark beige.
This beautiful item is signed under the base and in very good condition. There are no chips or cracks. When we first saw it on a flee market in the East of France, we especially fell in love with the colors. Such a great combination of turquoise and beige.

This charming Denbac ceramic liquor decanter comes from the French Art Pottery company, founded in 1909 in Vierzon by Rene Denert. It became known as Denbac after 1921 when Rene L. Balichon joined the company. Over the next ten years it evolved from small artisanal studio to a company with up to 49 employees. Denbac produced flasks and liqueur containers for companies like Cointreau, both in stoneware and porcelain. The production reflected the elegant lines and muted colours of the Art Nouveau period. Later on it spanned into the geometric lines of Art Deco. For more information about Denbac see here.
