Hello 👋  it's brocante time here in SW France so I'm asking for help with my first unidentified find of the season ;)

These lovely emerald green pitchers look to be wheel thrown with a very nicely formed / proportioned twist handle. The larger one has a mark which I think is " L. Bros "

I initially thought these might be Poet Laval but obviously this mark doesn't seem to marry up. Maybe it's a studio potter?

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to know what you think. Thanks for looking!

Hi Tenpot 👋 I was hoping you might weigh in ;)

Yes I've seen some of the other pieces on line, many of them have hand painted signatures so I think we are looking at a French studio potter, very technically skilled, but largely unknown. From these and the other pieces online I think active mid 20th c.

It's hard to search more in depth because the surname is Bros which obviously throws up a whole bunch of irrelevant results (Johnson Bros, etc) so I'm a bit stuck now...especially since you don't know who the maker is!

I like the pieces though so 🤷

Thanks again! Hope you're well and enjoying the sun 🌞
