Mid-Century French Ceramic Goblet Attributed to Albert Thiry (circa 1960s)
This delightful ceramic goblet is predominantly in an oatmeal glaze with a delicate flower motif in powdery blue and nut-brown coloured branches with speckles layered over the background. The interior is primarily off-white. In good vintage condition. The piece is unsigned. Clearly attributable to Albert Thiry (see below). Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video of the ceramic may be provided.
About the Artist: Albert Thiry was born in Nice, France (1932 - 2009). His family moved to Vallauris where he spent most of the school holidays in the potteries; in 1956 he was taken on as an assistant decorator with an opportunity to make his own pieces. In 1961 Albert and his wife Pyot set up their own pottery. Their standard production, in Vallauris clay with added grog to emphasise rusticity, resulted in delightful pieces both highly elaborate or utilitarian. The utilitarian pieces which are very recognisable are not signed (French Pottery of the 50s by PierreStaudenmeyer).
