Malarmey Vase ... but which Malarmey? Mal310


Hi Folks,

I hope this is the right place to ask the following question.

I have been under the impression that this French vase was made by Jean-Claude Malarmey. But now I am not so confident ... could it be his ... or might it be by his wife? Is there anyone here who can tell me who made it?

It stands 24cm/9.5" high, with a diameter of 10cm/4".

It is marked at the base 'MALARMEY'.

It certainly looks like his style of pottery but not his signature.

Here is a mark attributed to his wife Jeanine:

Malarmey Vase ... but which Malarmey? Malarm10

This one is attributed to him:

Malarmey Vase ... but which Malarmey? Malarm11

Either the attributions are wrong, or they both have very similar hands (I note the M and the Y seem to be the same in all three marks).

But, other marks attributed to him appear to be upper and lowercase writing ... which implies that my vase is not by him! Shrugs

Certainly looks like his wife's hand, assuming that's the correct attribution. I think the similarities in the style make it fairly certain it's one of theirs

I thought it was the daughter, the question is was it at Vallauris or later

... Ah ... Veronique is the daughter and took over the atelier ... Yes? I have got this info from La Bergerie website ... it mentions Jeanine as Jean-Claudes wife, and shows some pots she made, plus the above signature. Unfortunately, there is no info on Veronique producing pieces there, but Google comes up with at least what appears to be her mark (which looks different from the other ones above):

Malarmey Vase ... but which Malarmey? Veroni10

As to whether it is a Vallauris ceramic, I have no way of knowing.

What do you reckon?
