Charles Greber was an exponent of the Art Nouveau stoneware pottery style of which the most famous exponent is his Beauvais contemporary August Delaherche. The style, typified in this vase, relies upon highly interesting high fired glazes on an often simple but appropriate form which show off the qualities of the glaze. Both Greber and Delaherche adapted the Beauvais traditional method of stoneware pottery to this style.
The colour of this vase is predominantly black, but there are gold highlights playing around the neck.
The base has the impressed script Greber as well as an impressed GREBER BEAUVAIS FRANCE.
