Delaherche elongated the shape of a traditional vase and added subtle yellow and purple streaks to the saturated red glaze based on Chinese oxblood (sang de boeuf). Such artistic nuances made him a favorite of critics and connoisseurs. One writer explained, "To possess in one's collection one of Delaherche's Grès Flambés is to proclaim one-self one of the cognoscenti of modern ceramic art."
This vase is one of only twelve examples of this model, recorded in Delaherche's sketchbook on May 3, 1893.
