In 1895, the owners of Tuileries de Marseilles commissioned a young talented potter, Louis Sicard, to create a faience pottery gift. He chose the shape of a cicada, popular with with writers and poets in this area. Today the cicada is believed to be a symbol of good luck and happiness.

This French pottery cicada basket, circa 1950's, created during the time that Picasso lived in Vallauris and was instrumental in the revival of the local pottery industry. It portrays a 3-dimensional cicada figure clinging to the image of a mature tree. It measures 4" in length, 3 1/2" in width and 3 3/4" in height. Stamped on the under-side "L Sicard". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Wonderful example of Sicard's cicada pottery.
