Lucille Sévin, was a French sculptor, active in the
years 1920 to 1940. She made many chryselephantine sculptures in
the Art Deco style and her work was distributed by Edmond Etling
(where for a time she was the artistic director) and she also
worked in glass, ceramics and porcelain. Her husband, the sculptor
Jean Théodore Delabassé, also worked for Etling.
La Societe Anonyme Edmond Etling was founded after the First World
War in Paris. Edmund Etling was a retailer who commissioned art
works in bronze, ceramics, and glass (mostly from French artists).
The glass pieces were usually made for Etling at the Choisy-le-Roi
glass works. Their entire output was produced during the Art Deco
period because the company unfortunately did not survive the
second world war.
