€217,540
In
a programme confronting American design with the Scandinavian scene, the latter carried off a resounding victory, mainly due to the ceramist Axel Salto. The Dane totalled €540,922 in fifteen lots, posting a French record at €217,540 (source: Artnet) with the vase in the photo, which also took second place in his global performance. The estimate for the piece was no higher than €60,000. Two vases with irregular interlinked protuberances also inspired some lively bidding. The larger of the two (h. 33 cm), from 1950, entitled "Fruit", shot up to €105,940 while the smaller one (h. 24.5 cm) from 1948 garnered €50,140. Produced in around 1940, a "Bumpy 20713" vase (h. 30 cm) went up to €52,620. All the pieces sold were in glazed stoneware and produced by Royal Copenhagen, with the most sought-after featuring subtle, complex colour effects. The ceramist joined the company in 1933. The organic forms he favoured harmonised with the lichen-like speckled "Solfatara" glaze he liked to use, evoking moss and damp earth. Originally a painter, Salto worked at Bing & Grondahl between 1923 and 1925 alongside Jean-René Gauguin, the son of Paul. At that time, he produced glazed biscuit pieces. The ones he presented at the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris brought him glowing notices. Sylvain Alliod
