Bibliography: "Art et Décoration février 1897 n°2", model reproduced on page 30. Written in the text: in 1897 in Passons de chez Bodinier in the studio of ceramist Dalpayrat: "How do you like this fountain he modeled? Isn't it very French? But all that, my good friend, is nothing compared to the dazzling colors that the caprice of fire has sown in spots of crimson or ruby, in tears of turquoise, in flows of sapphire on its sides. Congratulate the artist and let's move on." And also: in The Paris Salons volume IV céramique et glass 1998 page 100 Also: in Adrien Dalpayrat, French Art Nouveau ceramist.
