French Lava

This look is most often associated with German pottery, commonly referred to as "Fat Lava"...but the great surprise is that this textured pitcher is actually from the French city of Vallauris, c. 1950s. We imagine the intent was to give the pottery an antiqued look, perhaps like a vessel that was salvaged from a sunken treasure. A lovely watery shade of blue with a touch of iridescence.
