Art Pottery Vase by Roger Guerin in the collection of Anthony J Sargeant

Standard

Roger Guerin, Bouffioulx, Belgium - Height 15 cm

Bought many years ago and at the time unidentified but bought because it was an interesting shape and glaze. It is by a distinguished Belgian potter, Roger Guerin and probably dates to the 1920s. It is 15 cm in height. The lesson being buy with your eye – sometimes the result is interesting (and possibly profitable) – but that is not the point. The point is …. buy what you find interesting and beautiful. It now sits on a shelf in the second bedroom of the Shropshire home of Tony Sargeant. It is an example of Guerin’s salt fired “Gres Flamme” glaze.
