The ever so wise and majestic owl is the subject of this petite pitcher. Outlined in painterly strokes of vivid blue against the radiant ivory gloss of the white enamel surface, this quaint owl is elegantly striking for its understated beauty. Whimsical for its playful illustrative qualities, yet demure for its effortless sense of symmetry and design, this dainty commands attention.
Created in 1954, this turned pitcher of white earthenware clay with oxide decoration (blue) on white enamel is from the edition of 200 and is stamped with the 'MADOURA PLEIN FEU' and 'EDITION PICASSO' pottery stamps on the underside.
