Stylised MidCentury Ceramic Watering Pot / Vase by Accolay, circa 1950s

About

Stylised midcentury ceramic watering pot / vase by Accolay (circa 1950s). A modern take on the traditional watering pot with spout and handle. The pattern on the pot is repeated on both sides in green and red with white outline on the earthen brown surface. The lip of the mouth has bits of shiny glaze which simply adds interest to the piece. This gallery has another Accolay piece in this style but very different shape. In good vintage condition commensurate with age and use including some characterful but minor scrapes and bumps. Signed on the bottom: 'Accolay' with maker's mark / logo. Upon request, a video clip of this piece will 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 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 21.5 cm / 8.5" W 32 cm / 12.6" D 11.5 cm / 4.5".
