Does anyone know who febo is?

Post by ev on June 27th 2012, 3:44 am

I found this lovely little dish that has febo stamped on the back and can't find anything on google, as a food on the run place has the same name. European was my first thought, so here I am to try and find some info ;)
I am intrigued by the stoney/pebble technique that has been used as the background for the cave drawing and would like to know more about it.
Camera is on the blink so have resorted to using the phone camera, which doesn't do the piece justice.

Came across something similar on ebay, but there are signed on the back. See listing titled: 4x Vintage 7x3.5" Glazed Cave Painting Signed Art Pottery Dishes Trays c1970s
I think the signature is J Lleixu

Thanks NaomiM :)
Yes they are made using the same intriguing technique, with the same colourings.
Will have to do some more research now ....
