Ceramic flower vase (circa 1960s) by Gustave Reynaud (1915 - 1972) at Le Mûrier studios. A tall flower vase with yellow tulip motif over an off-white elegant glaze. The understated colours of the flower and leaves contrast with the bolder black stem. In excellent vintage condition. Maker's mark appears on base of ceramic.
About the Artist: Gustave Reynaud (1915-1972) founded the pottery, Le Mûrier (Mulberry Tree), in Vallauris, France in 1955. He produced earthenware designed in conjunction with his well known brother-in-law, Jean Derval, as well as vases, wall plaques and anthropomorphic jugs. He also worked with the potter JF Descombes and decorator Michel Barbier in their well known village. After Reynaud's death in 1972 his wife ran the pottery until 1984.
