This vintage mid-century cheese serving platter has a twisted metal handle (which can be unscrewed for ease of storage or transportation.)
It is in perfect condition with no visible chips, cracks or scratches
It measures 29cms/11½" diameter and weighs 1.2kgs/2.6 lbs.
The small scenic town of Vallauris is in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Provence-Alpes -Côte d'Azur region of South-Eastern France.
It became world famous when Picasso lived there in the 1940's and 1950's and Majolica from Vallauris is celebrated for its beautiful glazes and extraordinary shapes.
This plate has been hand-painted in an expressive mid-century, highly textured, design that typically characterizes the region’s pottery.
The brown base glaze of this plate has been overlaid with a gorgeous white 'foam' and mingled with ‘cherry red’ surrounding glaze on alternate segments.
It has a subtle, fluted edge and the glaze is raised to form six large 'cheese' sections or twelve smaller 'cake slice' size segments.
It is clearly marked ‘Vallauris’ on the glazed underside.
There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your cheese course at dinner parties than on a beautiful piece of vintage Vallauris pottery! ..............I love it!.................
