Mid-Century French Decorative Pitcher / Vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
Vintage French ceramic decorative pitcher / decanter / vase (circa 1950s) by Jacques Blin. The vase is in a subtle blue hue covered in Blin's trademark misty glaze. It is decorated with a frieze of crouching figures planting the fields supported below by a series of geometric patterns which is repeated at the lip. So creative in a much sought-after style and becoming more difficult to acquire. In good overall condition. Signed: 'J. Blin' on the underside base. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video may be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995) gave up a career in engineering for his love of the visual arts. Blin has an immediately recognisable style characterised by a more or less misty appearance of the glaze and by decoration deeply marked in the raw clay, a method he used throughout his career. He frequently depicted fanciful birds, primitive animals, stylised figures and abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin".
