A fantastic, striped porcelain lidded vessel created by Canadian ceramicist Roseline Delisle. Born in Canada, she attended the Institute of the Applied Arts, Montreal and produced ceramics for a time before moving to Venice, CA and Santa Monica where she perfected her signature styles and forms. Her porcelain objects are in museums and private collections around the world. This lidded vessel decorated in colored slip is typical of her work, we're guessing it probably dates to the 1980s. She employed a technique whereby separate sectional pieces enabled her to gain height and form with her porcelain objects. We feel this piece would look fabulous in a modern setting with other ceramics or on its own. I don't believe her work comes up for sale very often.
The bottom portion of this piece is striped in black and white, the interior has black and blue stripe detail and the base is inset with a blue stripe and signature. The lid, which can also be displayed upside-down on its own, is striped black and white on the outside and blue, black and white on the inside. The finial area is extremely detailed, with tiny black and blue stripes on an inset portion and another signature.n Signed on the bottom interior portion of base with "Roseline Delisle Vase 44" and on the interior portion of lid finial with "Roseline Delisle 44". We will require signature confirmation on this item.
In good vintage condition, with no cracks. Lid has several chips to the edge - please see all the photos, there are about 5 of them. There is a smudge in the blue glaze on the bottom interior of base (see last photo). Base does not have any chips, and if display with the lid placed upside down on it, the chips do not show as much. Price has been reduced for the damage, however. We are guessing that it might be possible to repair the damage since it is just black and white.
Measures about 9 1/2 inches tall with lid on, base portion alone is about 7 1/2 inches tall, around 4 1/2 inches at widest point.
