Ceramic Lemonade Service Set by Gustave Reynaud, Le Mûrier (circa 1950s)
Ceramic Lemonade Service Set by Gustave Reynaud (circa 1950s) for Le Mûrier. A charming pitcher with Reynaud's iconic and whimsical birds and plants is complemented by a set of eight vintage mugs similarly marked. A delightful collector's set for those who love mid-century French ceramics and the Atelier Le Mûrier. Commensurate with their age, there are some minor blemishes, dings and nicks, however they are in good vintage condition all things considered. They are truly delightful. Please view the accompanying photos carefully to appreciate the condition and aesthetic qualities of the pieces. Upon request a video of the pieces may be provided.
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, J-F Descombes, and decorator Michel Barbier in their well known village in the French Riviera. After Reynaud's death in 1972 his wife ran the pottery until 1984.
