Decorative arts in Perigord in the 19th – 20th c.

In the same way as for the graphic arts, the collection of objects assembled by André Voulgre did not escape the artistic and manufacturing influences of the regional capital, Bordeaux.

The prestigious fine tableware of the china maker came from the Vieillard and Johnston factory in Bordeaux. It was this same factory that also supplied certain enamel painters adapting ceramic techniques to the civil and religious stained glass windows produced in large numbers for the rich homes and churches in Aquitaine at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Those of the Carthusian monastery Voulgre obviously come from there and are signed by the Protestant master glassmakers Malécot or Chauffrey.
