Pornic is a commune in South-Eastern Brittany, in western France and "La Faïencerie" in Pornic produces an extremely wide range of earthenware. The pottery is a family enterprise founded in 1947 and specializes in hand painted ceramics, like this beautiful platter.
The rich yellow ochre base glaze of this platter has been 'spotted' with a 'foam' like layer of white 'spots' and then a thicker deep bronze/sepia glaze has been 'spread', into the center, to form the leaves. The stems and veins have been drawn in midnight blue 'inky' lines that merge and spread giving it subtle definition and a textured surface. You can 'feel' the delicacy with which the potter has applied the brush strokes.
It's very rare and collectible
On the underside it is marked MBFA Pornic, Peint à la Main (Manufacture Bretonne de Faïences Artistiques (M.B.F.A.) of Pornic, hand painted.
Such a wonderful, unique work, it's hard to part with!................
