Bibliography
“Un service à toilette en vermeil et en cristal, d’une étonnante richesse, doit aussi être mentionné. Le thême du décor, c’est l’aurore, le réveil de la nature. Sur la pièce principale, c’est-à-dire le broc, est représenté en demi-relief un cygne qui s’ébat dans un étang, que le soleil éclaire de ses feux et à la surface duquel s’étalent des feuilles de nénuphars. Enveloppant le contour du broc de ses deux ailes à moitié ouvertes, comme pour faire sa toilette, le cygne tord son long col dans un geste nonchalant, et son bec s’allonge jusqu’à l’orifice du récipient pour en aspirer l’eau. L’idée est originale, charmante ; il s’en faut de peu que l’œuvre ne soit parfaite”. Victor Champier, L’Exposition Universelle de Bruxelles, La Revue des Arts Décoratifs, 1897, p. 390. Illustration of the pitcher p. 361

PIERRE-ADRIEN DALPAYRAT – VIDE-POCHE, CIRCA 1900

VIDE-POCHE, CIRCA 1900
Red, blue, green enameled grès
Signed VD

Bibliography
“Je dois mentionner aussi, dans le domaine du grès, les pièces flambées du malheureux Voisin-Delacroix, mort depuis peu, en collaboration avec M. Adrien Dalpayrat. On ne peut reprocher à cette production que certaines bizarreries de modelage, des amalgames de formes animales ou de formes humaines, et de masses plus ou moins confuses pétries au hasard. On ne me fera point admirer tels petits vases embasés en ergots de coq, ou tels objets indéterminés tenus par une main de femme. Ne m’objectez pas que l’étude de la matière prime ici le sujet plastique. La recherche du potier en face de son four ne s’accomode d’aucun manque de goût. Je formule, d’ailleurs, cette réserve d’autant plus nettement que plusieurs morceaux de Voisin-Delacroix et de M. Dalpayrat sont d’une grande valeur”.
