KERALUC VASE

10" tall, 8-1/2" across handles, 5" base diameter, 4-1/4" opening. Luscious colors are just the right foil for fall's garden bounty, a perfect complement to the embossed designs on each side. This is a Jean Mazuet form, signed "Keraluc pres Quimper", and H.C., the painter's monogram. The Keraluc faïencerie was started by Victor Lucas, after WW II, and was only in existence until the early 1990s, so the artist-designed pieces are cherished by the devotées of that period. In perfect condition, just water stains inside from years of use.

$150, plus shipping.

PAUL FOUILLEN SHALLOW CALOTTES

9-1/4"- 9-1/2" diameters, plates of very heavy quality. These have always been considered among the most desirable of all his decors: the rich colors, the strong graphics, the tantalizing drama of the fisherman and his ladies. It is not surprising that they have been featured in all the important literature about this important artist.* In perfect original condition from the de la Hubaudière factory, mid 1920s.

$225 each, plus shipping.

PALETTE WALL POCKET

8-1/2" x 7-1/2", the envelope pocket will take note paper 5-1/2" square, roughly 6-8 sheets.

Modest conservation, as noted by the red dots under the signature, now in perfect condition, and simple to hang on a single nail where the paint brushes poke through.

HENRIOT SMALL PLATE

7" diameter, a little gem, quite possibly a one-of-a-kind, as the "Emaux" on the back indicates a trial piece for testing glazes. Done by the artist Youen for the Henriot factory, late 1950s. This is such a vibrant piece! It is like the portrait of a flower and really merits a special spot, like any good painting. In perfect condition.
