Vallauris (South of France) - Page 13 Empty Le Vaucour table lamps

Post by slopingsteve on January 28th 2017, 12:01 pm

Have we got a thread for le Vaucour?

Boat shape no 434
Goose no 97

It is a while since I posted my Dali-esque photo of my swan lamp (on a mirror table) reflecting a shy baby elephant. I have had the boat shape base for a long time but I have only just found the time to fit the shade. It is an original shade but not, I think, from this particular boat shape. I would have preferred a slightly longer and taller shade but they are so hard to find these days that I am happy to make do with this one for now.

PS Tenpot: Do you know if there is any literature specifically covering Le Vaucour either as a stand-alone or as part of another publication?

PPS Rita: Having just reviewed the Vallauris thread, I think we must be twins separated at birth......Well, stranger things have happened, just look at the USA

Thanks for the reply. I have got to say that not everyone holds his work in such high esteem as I do; my wife, for example. The little goose/swan has taken nearly ten years to grow on her, but now she says she quite likes it. That is why I thought I might be able to "introduce" the boat shape. I am hoping that, by the time she finally accepts the boat, Le Vaucour's star will be in the ascendancy having been on the Antiques Roadshow or somesuch.

I perhaps ought to clarify that the table that the lamps are standing on is a fold-out side table/coffee table and not a fold out dinner table, lest you are led to assume that the lamps are about three feet tall (and weigh 25kg each). It's a nice little table, quite arts-and-craftsy, and I'm very fond of it.

I own these two vases, both marked with Vallauris, but from different potteres. Anybody know who made these? The "Vallauris" on the first is very hard to read on the photo, but you can read it when you hold the vase against light.

There are a lot of examples of Vallauris on this thread, and I think some links to potters marks. All I can suggest is looking through it for similar examples

I like Vallauris and if I see it at the boot sale I tend to buy it providing the seller doesn't know what it is and has it priced as "Gaudy old tat" or somesuchlike.
The small ramekin like pots are tiny copies of the large Marmites that crop up, so might be Marmitettes ( good name for a band!). Wonderfully simple, with the terracotta body and terracotta glaze, but feel old and sophisticated somehow, even though they are not. Marked AEGITNA, which I haven't researched as yet.
Great for olives and small nibbles at a party, I suppose, even though I would be on tenterhooks.......

It is a made-up word that has been prompted by the letters page in Private Eye. In the "Pedants Column" all the clever people finish their letters with "I would get out more but....." as if we give a flying.... fish. Rooted in dodgy, half-remembered Latin from school 45 years ago, edomuate ought to mean sort-of " go out of your home". This is in reply to you thinking that watching me drinking red wine from R.C's pyjamas is preferable to watching IACGMOOH. I posit that neither is a worthwhile way of spending even one pico-second when considering the limited time we have on this planet.

That's as maybe, but what do you think of the goblets?
I'm getting into drinking vessels at the moment. On holiday this summer I bought two; a Muchelney tankard whilst visiting the pottery, and that is a difficult one to find! I loved the sunken house on the road out there, but I digress: the second I bought in Bideford, having spent an electrifying (to me at least) five minutes talking to Neil Juniper as he was working in the arcade up the hill. God's truth!!!! if you ever want to see a man who knows what he is doing, seek him out.
The Muchelney tankard is much as I expected a stoneware pot to be - heavy, thick but comforting. The Bideford one is so different! Light, colourful and thin, amazingly thin for a terracotta piece, and, to be honest, it is the one I generally pick out for my evening Abbot. This surprises me still. I have loved the Leachs' work for years but Mr Juniper is a revelation and I thank him for just existing.

I have always liked those goblets but the grey is not the best colour generally

There are no greys as such. I have enhanced the colours slightly because of a poor photo but the colours are the ones shown. These are quite subtle in comparison with the other colourway which includes the reds. I had bought these as a Christmas present but the recipient ended up being me as they are too much fun to give away immediately. Perhaps I'll pass them on when I die.... or perhaps I'll take them with me.

I've had this liqueur set for about ten years now but my missus insist that she can never find quite the right place for it in our domestic design scheme.
I have come to the belated conclusion that she might be, what's the word... dissembling.
I bought it because it was the craziest thing that I'd ever seen and , to be honest, hadn't considered its place in our home decor. I don't see it as being by Le Vaucour but I don't know if it is before or after him, or in which direction the influences flow.


It remains crazy, and a complete pig to wash or clean out, every single last piece of it.
