History

Joseph Gauthier was born in Carcassone France in the late 19th Century. He exhibited his bronzes in many of the Paris Salons in the 1920’s

Art Deco (1920-1930s) is a style of decorative arts which first emerged in France, characterised by its geometric style. Art Deco was the successor to Art Nouveau, and a key differentiator is the influence of cubism associated with iconic artists like Pablo Picasso. Deco influenced architectural design, such as the Chrysler Building in New York, furniture, jewellery, fashion, cars and even domestic objects such as vacuum cleaners. René Jules Lalique is considered one of the key influencers of the art deco movement. After a successful career making jewellery in the art nouveau style, he started to make press-moulded, glass vases in his factory in the Alsace region of France.
