Catalogue Note

Albert Dammouse (Paris 1848- Sèvres 1926) was raised with a knowledge of pottery.  His father worked at the Sèvres manufactory, and Albert was taught outside the factory by Marc Louis Solon, one of the most famous designers at Sèvres in the second half of the 19th century. Dammouse soon reaped success. His first public exhibition at the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs resulted in a gold medal. His success enabled him to open his own kiln in 1892.

Dammouse took part in all the large World Exhibitions, especially those of 1878 and 1889 in Paris where he received a Médaille d'Or. Then at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900, he was awarded the Grand Prix. He continued to shows his work in St. Louis 1904, and in Paris in 1925, just one year before his death. He also entered his work in most of the exhibitions of the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs, and the Salons of the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts. (F.
