HENRI HAMM (1871-1961)

RARE ART NOUVEAU CARVED FRUITWOOD PERFUME BOTTLE STAND, CIRCA 1900. of tall and slender organic form, carved with flowering plants and sinuous leafy tendrils, with two open shelves enclosing a single door with inscription LE SOUVENIR EST UN PARFUM, the door with cast escutcheon and original leaf cast key, the whole above slender column with four further open shelves and spreading base, engraved signature H. HAMM

167cm high, 26cm wide

Literature: Cappa, G., `L’Europe de l’Art Verrier`, Mardaga, Liège, 1991. Note: Born in Bordeaux, Henri Hamm was most particularly known for his work in the glass industry, creating over 350 designs for perfume bottles before the outbreak of the First World War. Although he had a talent for design on a small scale, he was equally at home on a larger scale and was also known for his execution of small cabinet pieces, and works in rich materials such as ivory, bone, mother-of-pearl and silver, including boxes, buttons, hair combs etc. The present lot was doubtless made by Hamm as a display for his perfume bottles. At 26, Hamm founded the Societé d`Art Moderne de Bordeaux and by 1925 he became a professor at L`Ecole des Arts Appliqués. Hamm collaborated with many designers, most notably fashion designer Jacques Doucet and many of his works can be found in Musée d`Art Moderne and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.
