Who or what is Veral? ... Its VEROL friend of Allix, Vallauris

Post by touchdry on September 29th 2018, 7:58 pm





I could not resist this little broken jug - found in a junk shop in Charente, France. The colouring seems to hint at Robert Picault ... but not the design.

So who or what is VERAL ... if, in deed, that is what is written?

Does this have anything to do with Vallauris?

There are references to "Veral" marked on pottery on eBay ... but no one seems to know who the potter is.

Is there anyone here who can solve this little puzzle?

Height 14cm Diameter 8.5cm

Keval maybe? Vallauris is very possible, or Hungary?

bit of an enigma definitely Vallauris IMO verval was the name of Kostandas glass production (vere - valauris ) but seems to be missing a letter and isnt glass

Thanks for your responses NaomiM and tenpot (and dantheman!)... the plot thickens ... what do you make of this?



This was in an online auction ... its made by Michel Alexandrov ALLIX Um...

It looks the same colour way, same shaped jug (only his is 19cm high), same design ... so IS it the same hand?

... perhaps tenpot you have revealed another possibility ... supposing the mark is not 'veral' but a wierd 'French' way of writing 'Va-al'? Meaning VA for Vallauris ... and AL for ALLIX???

... just thought ...
