Vallauris Pitcher with Label & Signature ??
« on: November 02, 2011, 06:29:01 AM »
 ;) there;

Recently found this at the Opp shop.  Has a gold foil label on it that says VALLAURIS and then some other signature.  Have not clue what is says -- looks like *Unity* or something like that ???  Rough textured surface....I mean really rough!!  It is about 7 inches tall and 5 inches wide at the widest point.

I thought I had read a long time ago that Vallauris was highly collectible, or their tiles ??  Is this item?  Kinda take a fat lava shape -- to a whole *new* level.....LOL

Any info on this item, or the maker....or year?  Thanks in Advance!!  :kissy:

Hmmm this finish reminds me of a jar my mother used to have but I can't recall what the mark was on hers. There's a page of Vallauris marks here though Rose: http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/mp.cgi?item=98 might be worth a trawl through to see if there's a match?
Cheers!

That's really unusual Rose.  I wonder if it is meant for flowers or for the table?

Hi there:

Found this site here: http://www.modernstudioart.co.uk/page7.htm about some Vallauris potery.

I note that there is a name there of (Albert) Thiry?

Do you think this is what is could say on the bottom?  Possible...as it looks like the word ends in a *Y*...so just throwing that out there.... ???



ADDED:
I might have answer my Own question here.  See this site:  http://www.ceramic-signatures.com/index.php?id_page=1438 and scroll down to Albert Thiry (1931-2009).   There is a sample of his signature there....see Here:  http://data.immoserver.ch/file/18680/thumbnail/80x80/preview.jpg

...or click there at the site for a *larger* image than the one I posted. 

IMHO, it looks like it might be a match.............again, IMHO
What do you Think??

Those are GOOD reference pages to Keep here on the Board too... I think :tup1:

I'm not convinced that its the same as the letter T isn't crossed at the top, and there appears to be two vertical lines at the beginning.  I just wonder if it might be Jacques Innocenti instead?  I'm going cross eyed looking :hm: :bolt:

Great website Rose - I've bookmarked it :kissy:
