About

Gilded ceramic decorative wall mirror by François Lembo (circa 1960s-1970s). Porthole-shaped ceramic frame embellished with colourful enamelled cabochons in muted coral and black imitating natural stones. The piece is in fair vintage condition with evidently restored crack in frame and characterful age marks on the glass itself. The overall appeal and unquestionable beauty is however, retained. The back of the mirror is intact with the same restored crack close to the hanging ring. The characterful blemishes translate to a very competitively priced vintage piece which would be a conversation piece in any home or work space. Signed in two places on the rear: 'F. Lembo'. A short video of the piece can be provided upon request. About the designer: A native of Vallauris François Lembo (1930 - 2013) started his pottery career in 1951 in the workshops of Calva and Rossignol. After his apprenticeship he worked for 3 years in his father-in-law, Marc Roussel's, studio, before opening his own in the famed town of Vallauris, France in 1960. The work of Roussel, influenced by Byzantine art, inspired Lembo to create mirrors, often decorated in the style of Russian icons. He produced a number of religious icons decorated with small ceramic beads and sold his work at "Terre de Provence" with considerable success in the 1960s and 1970s. He worked as a ceramicist for some 23 years and passed away in 2013. His son Renaud continues as a ceramicist in Vallauris. Dimensions: Diameter 28 cm (11.02") Depth 2.0 cm (0.79")
