French Ceramic Decorative Platter by the Frères Cloutier (circa 1970s)
French ceramic decorative platter by the Frères Cloutier (circa 1970s). A charming decorative platter created in the trademark subtle hues of the Cloutiers. It is immediately identifiable as theirs. Painted at the centre of the platter is a delightful bouquet of flowers in a basket. With its French Provencal charm it may be placed anywhere in your home or workplace. It is in very good overall condition. Maker's mark on the underside.
About the Designers: Jean and Robert Cloutier are called the twin brothers of ceramics. After having apprenticed for Lafourcade, Rivière, Georges Jouve and Pol Chambost, the brothers created their own workshop located in Paris in 1955. They produced both functional and dreamlike decorative objects. After Paris and a brief interlude in the town of Yonne, France, the Cloutiers put down roots in the Languedoc region of southern France. Forever refining their ceramic processes, they are considered to have perfectly mastered their profession and are held in the highest esteem.
