About

Stylised mid-century ceramic pitcher by Accolay (circa 1960s). A creative take on the traditional pitcher with extended handle, the zoomorphic shape suggests the very bird that is painted on the sides of its earthen brown form. The interior viewed through the mouth has a tranquil green glaze, its smoothness contrasting with the rustic more craggy body. In good overall condition. Maker's mark on the underside with 'Accolay'. Upon request, a video of this piece may be provided. About Accolay Ceramics: Four Parisian friends who were taught the art of pottery by Alexandre Kostanda were contracted by Christian Dior in 1945 to make ceramic buttons for his new collection, along with brooches and jewellery, about 300 pieces in total. When the fashion magazine photos were released of Dior's new collection, it made fine ceramic buttons a must-have in every wardrobe. That initial success meant the group opened their own studio in the town of Accolay in the Burgundy region of France. There they created utilitarian ceramics, decorative ornamental pieces, photo frames, fruit baskets and small ceramic sculptures. They were so successful, most everyone in the town of Accolay either worked in their studios or knew someone who did. Their success continued into the 1970s, but once the original creators passed away, the continuation of the line was nearly impossible and the pottery closed its doors having left a legacy of beautiful and whimsical pieces. Dimensions: H 18 cm / 7.1" W 17 cm / 6.7" D 13 cm / 5.1".
