Remarkable silver vase with a grasshopper

Because of its impressive quality, it seems very likely that our vase was exhibited in the Salons of Paris and Mulhouse in 1908. Indeed, we can see on the book of the Paris Salon that the silversmith exhibited there, a display case containing diverse works of art who belong to Mr Hébrard, founder. On the second Salon’s book, the number 142 is designated as a silver vase, property of Mr. A. Hébrard, Art founder, in Paris, 8, rue Royale.

Embossed decoration

Our baluster vase depicts an exceptional natural embossed decoration but also hammered and chiseled. We can see on a vines branches decor, a majestic grasshopper detaching on a textured and worked background alternating with smooth parts. This decoration, which also
extend on the neck, shows all of its creator’s talent which lies in his capacity to reproduce nature and its wonders with accuracy
