Immeuble Villa Faidherbe

This 1898 building, designed by the architect Emmanuel Brun, gives a large place to decorative ceramics: friezes of irises, cabochons, railings with thistle motifs...

This ceramic tile decoration is fashionable in seaside architecture, for its colorful character and its good resistance to sea spray, rain and sunlight. If earthenware factories existed at the time on the French Riviera (Massier in Vallauris, Saïssi in Menton) and in the Marseilles region, the motifs of this building have been identified as coming from the famous Parisian factory Muller.
