French Rockabilly era wall plate by Grandjean Jourdan Vallauris 1950s
Rare Vallauris wall plate made by the Grandjean-Jourdan pottery in the 1950s/early 60s.
The ceramic plate depicts a guitarist in silhouette, enamelled in black with deep sgraffito outline. The artist’s signature is etched below. The ‘olive wood’ glaze is hand painted, and was a speciality of Grandjean-Jourdan pottery.
It has the company’s indented signature on the back and a string loop for hanging. Striking and wildly kitsch.
Diameter 12 ½ inches / 31.5cm
