French Vintage Pink Decorative Fruit Bowl by Georges Pelletier (circa 1970s)
French vintage decorative fruit bowl by ceramicist Georges Pelletier (circa 1970s). Hand painted, the piece has brushed, rose-coloured highlights and gold-lustre edging sitting atop a graduated, elegant base. The bowl presents concentric circles with a sun motif in the centre and various geometric shapes. The exterior is similarly decorated. The piece is in good overall condition, its vintage character continuing to shine. Please enjoy the many accompanying photos with this listing. The piece is unsigned but undoubtedly from Pelletier's studio as evidenced by this decoration and very unique style. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
About the Artist: Georges Pelletier was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1938. He started his training at the Academy Charpentier in Paris (School of Arts and Crafts) in the building which is now the Picasso Museum. After that period, Pelletier worked at the Atelier Claude Pantzer, the renowned Accolay pottery. In 1961 the artist opened his own studio in Paris where he created his first unique pieces. His work was noted by the Bobois furniture house for his evident creativity and talent and was subsequently asked to supply Roche Bobois with their lighting collections between 1961 and 1973. In 1973 Pelletier followed the sun to the South of France in the city of Cannes where he set up a new workshop continuing to work with his son, Benjamin. Today Georges Pelletier is a world renowned artist whose works are highly collectible.
