Ceramic Basket Vase by Elchinger Manufacture, France

Fernand Elchinger (French, 1911-1975)

 

Multicolor glazed earthenware vase – Circa 1950

Stamp-signed Elchinger, France on the bottom

9 x 11 in (23 x 28 cm)

Excellent condition

 

Mid-century modern earthenware vase in the shape of a basket with two lobes separated by a handle.

It is enameled with shiny abstract, orange-red, organic forms placed on a background ranging from mat white to shiny anthracite gray and speckled blue. The inside of the vase is also enameled with a black glaze.

 

It makes no doubts that the bold and colorful design of this vase was carefully created by a manufacture’s decorator to be in line with the modern trend of its time and a tribute to the art of Miro which was and still is much admired.

 

The Elchinger Manufacture, named after the family who owned it for eight generations, was a ceramic manufacture located in Soufflenheim, Alsace, Eastern France, which operated from 1834 to 2016.

Fernand Elchinger (1911-1975) took over his family's ceramic business in 1936, developed and modernized the plant and built a second one in 1975.

 

Driven by the craze for ceramics from Vallauris (South of France) made popular by Picasso’s production, Elchinger Manufacture became famous for its own cheerful and artsy production from the 50’s to the 70’s. Its creations: vases, pitchers and jugs with sleek forms set them apart from the exuberance of Vallauris’.

 

From 1975 on, Elchinger’s production is resolutely oriented towards high-end tableware and home decor. Internationally renowned designers have collaborated with the manufacture to create unique lines still in style today.
