Set of Three French Ceramic Pieces by Gustave Reynaud for Le Mûrier (circa 1950s)
Set of three small, French ceramic pieces by Gustave Reynaud for Le Mûrier (circa 1950s). A very charming set includes a small apothecary jar, milk creamer and receptacle dish. All incorporate Reynaud's signature style, chalk-white colour base with flower and foliage motifs in the iconic subtle blue hue. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. Maker's mark appears on the base of each piece except the small round dish. Le Mûrier's trademarked mulberry leaf is the pottery's logo. Upon request, a video of the pieces may be provided. Please view the many accompanying photos in this listing to appreciate the set's condition and aesthetic qualities.
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.
