Sylvia tureen
    Sylvia tureen

This tulip-shaped tureen is in the Sylvia design. Sylvia was created by the French designer and cabinet-maker Paul Follot. Follot was one of many designers whose work can trace the development between Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Here this design not only looks in the same vein as Follot's work in other media, the viewer can see not only its distinctly-French lineage but also the development of those wider styles. This item dates from c.1922.
