Ceramic Wall Mirror with Flower Motif by François Lembo, circa 1960s

About

Ceramic wall mirror with flower motif (circa 1960s), by François Lembo (1930 - 2013). A porthole-shaped decorative wall mirror delights the eye. The inner and outer frames are in a stunning gold craqueleur. The enamelled flowers are superimposed over a chocolate brown ceramic finish. The flowers are whimsical in pink and russet with green leaves. The piece is in very good vintage condition commensurate with age. There are some minor blemish spots attesting to its longevity. The Lembo signature, when present, is most often masked by the felt backing and is thus not visible on this piece. A very charming and stylish mirror for your home or work place - a definite conversation piece. Upon request a video clip of the work will 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: Diameter 26.7 cm / 10.5" Height 1.5 cm / .6".
