Mid-Century French Ceramic Serving Set by Les Argonautes

Les Argonauts was a pottery studio set up in Vallauris, France in 1953 founded by Fréderique Bourguet (1925-1997) and Isabelle Ferlay (1917- ). Their work was exhibited in important ceramic exhibitions in Paris during the 50s. After an accident in 1955, Isabelle Ferlay could no longer work at the wheel. So Les Argonauts turned to moulding and modeling techniques. In the 1960s Les Argonauts created very simple forms, such as cylindrical vases decorated with wide abstract friezes on a cream ground and used bright glaze colours for the interiors. Additional literature available in the book "French Pottery of the 50s" by Pierre Staudenmeyer. The set has a beautiful blue interior glaze with an uneven cream base on the pieces of the set, both stamped and hand signed Les Argonauts. The lid of the medium pitcher has a small chip in it, could be easily restored. A great collectible set for any Valluaris ceramic collector.
