Beautiful large French ceramic night light of theatrical dancers, hand painted in navy and gold.
Signed to the side and to the base La Maitrise and Ayme.
I have a print of the 1926 Art Decoratifs studio book, which dates this rare piece to 1926. It also says La Pavane designed by Leyritz and executed by Atelier de la Maitrise, Paris. So I do not know if Ayme was a pseudonym used by Leyritz.
It is not currently fitted with a wire or bulb holder.
Very good condition.
10 inches (22cm) wide, 10 inches (22cm) high.
