The design has perhaps been inspired by a Cezanne still life as it has the intense colors, dark outlines and bold objects associated with works of that time.
It is absolutely stunning 'close up'.
It has a majolica glaze and the artist has outlined the objects for higher impact. The coffee pot is a gorgeous, rich chocolaty brown in the center and the fruit has been 'foam' glazed, raised against the smooth, glossy finish of the background. The cherries are a warm, intense red and the pear and apple a 'zesty, citrus' bright yellow.
A very tactile and striking table centerpiece. A real 'talking point' for your 'after dinner' conversation.
Rare and collectible.
It has a twisted wrought Iron handle, which can be unscrewed for ease of storage or for wall display.
Poët Laval (Pronounced Pwet!) is a village in south eastern France, not far from Montelimar. It has long been involved in the production of pottery.
This platter measures 30cms/ 11 ¾" diameter and has no chips. There is some slight 'hairline crackle' to the glaze, that is consistent with the age of the piece, and which in no way detracts from the beauty of this amazing piece of pottery.
The perfect gift for cheese lovers. Why not give this plate as a gift to your dinner host/hostess along with some French cheeses and a bottle of Bordeaux wine..........Perfection!................
