Ceramic Decorative Wall Mirror by François Lembo, 'circa 1970s'

About

Ceramic wall mirror with green glaze (circa 1970s) by François Lembo (1930-2013). A remarkable decorative wall mirror displaying two stylised, counter-facing peacocks in gold crackle with inlaid jade-coloured enamel in geometric shapes. Separating the birds is a whimsical inlay sun-motif mirror surrounded in gold crackle. The mirror edges are also framed in gold crackle glaze. There are other similarly accented highlights throughout which beautifully complement the vibrant green hue. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with respect to its age and usage. The felt backing is comfortably intact with original retailer stickers. The Lembo signature is usually masked by the felt backing and is thus not visible on this piece. A truly charming and stylish mirror for your home or work place - a sure conversation piece for guests. If requested, a video clip of this piece may be provided. About the Designer: A native of Vallauris, France, François Lembo (1930 - 2013) started his pottery career in 1951 in the workshops of Calva and Rossignol. After his apprenticeship he worked for 3 years in his father-in-law, Marc Roussel's, studio, before opening his own in the famed town of Vallauris, France in 1960. The work of Roussel, influenced by Byzantine art, inspired Lembo to create mirrors, often decorated in the style of Russian icons. He produced a number of religious icons decorated with small ceramic beads and sold his work at "Terre de Provence" with considerable success in the 1960s and 1970s. He worked as a ceramicist for some 23 years and passed away in 2013. His son Renaud continues as a ceramicist in Vallauris. Dimensions: H 37 cm (14.6") W 23 cm (9.1") D 1.5 cm (.6").
