In 1909 Edmond Laurent Etling founded a firm under his own name. He opened a shop in Paris on the 'Rue de Paradis nr. 29. In this shop one could buy the most exclusive art objects of that time, mainly made of bronze, ceramics or glass. Etling represented world famous sculptors and artists like Dimitri Chiparus, A. Godard, Claire-Jean Roberte Colinet, Lucille Sevin and her husband Jean Theodore Delabassé, Gazan, Georges Béal, Maurice Guiraud-Rivière and Marcel Guillard. These artisans were all leading members of the French modern art of that time and by creating ideal circumstances for them, Etling played a significant role in the style, which later became known as art deco.

A Group Of Keith Murray Basalt Vases.
Impressed marks and facsimile signatures.
Circa 1935

New Zealand-born Keith Day Pearce Murray was one of the most influential and significant modernist designers. Born in Stokes Road, Mt Eden in 1892, Murray emigrated to England at the age of 14 with his parents Charles Henry Murray, originally from Peterhead, Scotland, and Lillian Day Murray (nee George), from Nelson. Although he graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London in 1921, he turned his considerable design and drawing skills to working in the decorative arts for most of the 1930s

Coincident with his successful glass work, Murray began designing ceramic tablewares for Wedgwood. In contrast to the highly coloured decorated wares of contemporary Art Deco designers such as Clarice Cliff, his style of ceramic decoration was characterised by subtle glaze finishes and an architectonic furrowing of parallel horizontal grooves which served to accentuate the classical purity of his forms. The simplicity of his designs meant they were relatively inexpensive to produce, and could be adapted to slip casting rather than hand-potting, thus fulfilling Wedgwood's request for 'new cheap shapes, attractive to modern eyes' which would be 'the best possible for the money and reasonably attractive to that growing section of the younger public which has some taste but no money.'

Murray's first designs for Wedgwood were made in a cream-coloured earthenware (Queensware), and also in black, and later bronze, basalt stoneware, produced by mixing colours obtained from cobalt oxide, iron oxide and manganese oxide.

His work was widely exhibited and photographed, and won Murray numerous awards and accolades, including a gold medal at the 5th Triennale in Milan in 1933, and a place among the ten designers to become Royal Designers for Industry, where he later held the title of Master of the Faculty from 1945 to 1947.
