Mid 20th century, France

2 cilindrical vases in Colombe sandstone, from the 50s-60s
Enamelled and decorated stoneware vases. Weight 2194 gr. Height 18.5 and 27.5 cm. QQ lines in the large vase, barely noticeable.
One will recognize immediately the aesthetics of tachiste sandstone unique to this House and typical of the post-war period.
The pottery of the Colombe is located in Orriule, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64390), but a large part of their production was sold to Vallauris (PACA). Where spurious attribution of the Colombe Pottery in Vallauris.
Thanks to its cooking at high temperatures (over 1200°), sandstone is a ceramic material of a very high hardness that resists chemical or climate aggressions well.
It is known in English as stoneware, which means 'stone object '. And that's what looks like a sandstone before it is enameled.
The sandstone is considered less delicate than China (which is weaker), but more refined than simple terracotta.
