Felix Gete Ceramique d'Art de Bordeaux ceramic art pottery









Felix Gete (1870-1959)

He was instrumental in establishing Ceramique d'Art de Bordeaux (CAB) as
a leader of experimental ceramic art between 1919 (its foundation) to 1947
when it finally closed.

His work is understandably internationally acclaimed.

There is a chip to the top lip (see photo)- but that does not lessen the beauty of such a piece!

Charles Voltz Vallauris Mid Century pottery painted Vide Poche signed

Charles Voltz Vallauris Mid Century pottery
painted Vide Poche signed








Charles Voltz was born in Vallauris in 1923. 

He and his wife, Lili, opened their own studio in Vallauris.

They both produced pottery influenced by the current 50's fashion,
which included abstract designs and patterns similar to Robert Picault
... who, in turn, was influenced by the experiments that Pablo Picasso carried out
whilst he worked in Vallauris.

Charles Voltz died in 1997. 

His ceramics are totally unique, with a variety of tantalizing abstract designs.
The pieces themselves are very different in shape and design to any other works.
That is why they have become so collectible. 

This beautifully shaped vide poche is typical of his style and work.
It is signed "C.VOLTZ" and "VALLAURIS". 

Height: 8.5cm/3.25" - Length: 15cm/6" Width: 12.5cm/5" 

This is in excellent condition - no other chips, no cracks and no scratches.

Rene Beauclair Art Nouveau French Studio Pottery Quimper Odetta Vase

Art Nouveau French Studio Pottery Quimper Odetta Vase





This beautiful little Art Nouveau Vase was made between 1925-36,
most likely by Rene Beauclair at the Henriot Faience Factory, France. 

The Odetta style, which was owned soley by the Henriot Factory became wildly popular, so much so that it won the 1925 Exhibition Grand Prix.

It is said that its popularity was due to the French appreciation of the mixture of Celtic and local primitivism ... especially "a la Bretonne" ... which included esoteric Celtic geometric shapes.

The Odetta design was terminated in 1936.

The marks to the base include the RH for the Henriot factory;
'QUIMPER'
'ODETTA'
then perhaps a shape number '648'

Height 9.5cm/3.75". Widest Diameter 6.5cm/2.5" 

Amazingly, it is in excellent condition without cracks, scratches or chips.
