About

Rare oyster plate signed Robert Picault. Robert Picault (1919 - 2000) was born in Vincennes, Paris and studied at the School of Applied Arts in Paris. After the war he spent a short time teaching drawing and in 1945 he and his schoolfriends Roger Capron and Jean Derval decided to start their own ceramic business. Picault travelled to Golfe Juan on the French Riviera, where he taught and learnt how to produce pottery. Capron joined him in 1946 and they opened their first studio - Callis. Picault was the potter and Capron the decorator, while Derval was the PR person in Paris! The association was short lived and in 1948, Robert Picault set up on his own. He established his own style - producing utility ware in browns, greens and blues using geometric designs of circles, crosses etc. He also produced studio items - large dishes and vases. The company was very successful, employing up to 25 staff in 1955 and selling via large department stores.
