A Rare Pair Of Carl Deffner Nouveau Copper And Brass Vases C.1905 For Sale
A Pair of Carl Deffner Art Nouveau Copper and Brass Vases c. 1905.
A superb copper and brass pair of Carl Ludwig Deffner vases in good all original condition.
They are 16" (41 cm) high.
Japanese motives inspire the pattern at the top of the vases and the handles have the typical ‘coup de fouet’ shape that characterises the Art Nouveau style.
Both bases have the Coat of Arms cartouche with the letters ‘CDE’ between crossed swords which stand for Carl Deffner Esslingen. From about 1890 to 1915 the Art Nouveau style was prominent in the work of this manufacture that produced some important pieces for museums and collectors.
These vases were produced at a time when there were strong design influences from WMF, Wiener Werkstatte and Josef Hoffmann among others in Europe and Christopher Dresser, Liberty and Keswick in the UK.
Carl Christian Ulrich Deffner was born in 1789 in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
He started his metallwarenfabrikant around 1815 in Esslingen, Germany.
He had spent some time in England where he had learned the process of silver plating from Sheffield. He was the first one to bring such technique to Germany and applied the silver plating to items of copper, brass and bronze.
Carl Christian died in 1846 in Esslingen. His two sons, Carl Ludwig and Wilhelm Adolf continued the work of their father. After the death of Carl Ludwig (1817-1877), the factory was run by Wilhelm.
Wilhelm Adolf Deffner (Esslingen 1829-1897) had two sons, Carl (Esslingen 1856-1948) and Otto (Esslingen 1866-1949). They grew up working in the factory with their father and when he died, they inherited it and continued the work in metal works of art for interiors.
