Object History

Claudius Linossier (1893-1953) was one of the most important artistsian metal craftsman of the Art Deco Period.
From Lyon he was initially apprenticed to a workshop in his native Lyon where he leaned the skills of engraving ,embossing, enamel & metal incrustation.He then moved to Paris where he worked as Silversmith & Goldsmith.
Whilst in Paris he obtained a three month apprenticeship at the workshop of Jean Dunand,where he increased his skill & knowledge in the techniques of dinanderie.
Claudius Linossier had a passion for metal work & gradually developed,through his study of the properties of silver & various metal alloys the possibilities this knowledge gave in his craft to create his own unique style of work.
Ultimately his mastery of metal incrustation was to give his pieces their unmistakable identity of quality & style .
Although he particularly used geometric patterns he did also employ figural decoration & on rare occasions embossed sculptural decoration.
A large collection of his pieces were donated to the Musee des Beaux-Arts,Lyon, & his work is represented in the collections of major museums around the world.
