1950's Mid-Century Vallauris Cheese Serving Plate.


Posted on Tue Nov 06 2018

This is a very rare find - A vintage mid-century modern cheese serving platter with a twisted metal handle. (this can be unscrewed for ease of storage or transportation.) It is in perfect condition with no visible chips, cracks or scratches It measures 30cms diameter/11¾" and weighs 1.2kgs/2.6lbs. The fabulous bright 'fiery' orange/red and brown base glaze of this plate has been overlaid with a gorgeous 'foam' effect, mingled with ‘turquoise and cherry red’ streaks. The glaze radiates out from the center forming lines which 'draw out' from the middle of the plate. It has an accentuated, fluted edge and the glaze is raised to form twelve 'slice' size segments. It is clearly marked ‘Vallauris’ on the glazed underside. 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 modern, highly textured design that typically characterises the region’s pottery. 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!.................
