It is clearly marked ‘Vallauris’ on the glazed underside.
Anyone who collects majolica glazed mid century pottery would love this wonderful piece.
It would make a gorgeous fruit bowl or look stunning on an entrance hall table for storing keys etc. Perfect for Autumn themed interiors. An absolutely stunning table centerpiece.
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 bowl has been hand-painted in an expressive mid-century modern, highly textured design that typically characterizes the region’s pottery.
The brown base glaze of this bowl has been overlaid with a gorgeous mixture of turquoise, blue, yellow, white and creamy caramel 'foam' that mingles with the fiery orange on the outer edges, running down into the center, to cleverly form the veins within the leaf.
It is shaped as a leaf, with a 'ridged' stem and the pronounced, fluted, edge folds down deeply to the base, forming, smooth, undulations that are incredibly tactile and alluring.
It is large measuring 35cms/13¾" x 35cms/13¾", at it's widest points, and is 8cms/3" deep.
It is heavy, weighing 2kgs/ 4.4lbs!
It is in pristine, perfect condition, with no chips, scratches or cracks.
A beautiful piece of Vintage Vallauris Pottery! ..............We love it!.................
