Ceramic Green Vase by Accolay, circa 1960s

About

Ceramic vase by Accolay, circa 1960s. A deep jade green combines with a darker flattened drip effect on a curvaceous vase with integrated handle. Beautiful on the eyes and touch - sensuous and tactile. Maker's mark on base - signed 'Accolay' and 'A T'. Shield with cross on base is Accolay logo. AT refers to the individual potter or location made. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age and use. 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 jewelry, 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 useful 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 27 cm L 15 cm D 13 cm.
