Cup with Poppies


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Thesmar began his career designing textiles but was later employed as an enameler. Beginning in about 1890, Thesmar began to work in "plique-à-jour," or openwork, enamel. By 1912, the year of his death, Thesmar was acclaimed as France's finest enameler. Because of their extreme fragility, few of his works survive. On the base of this cup is an enameled beetle.
