Every piece from Le Tallec is designed and painted entirely by hand. Its team of decorators on porcelain continue to interpret the admirable decors originated by the Manufactures de Sèvres, St Cloud, Mennecy and the Porcelaine de Paris with a dexterity rivaling that of 200 years ago. The originality of Le Tallec pieces renders them works of art. Each porcelain piece decorated by the Atelier Le Tallec in Paris is signed with Le Tallec motif in a Sèvres-like mark and also signed by the painter and dated. Inside the Le Tallec mark appear two series of letters which on this piece is "LL" for 1959. There are the initials of the artist in the lower part. The artist has hand painted the four main panels on the jar and the lid with a frosty gold. On the corner panels and the top of the base he has used a light creamy pistachio green. The larger panels are decorated in black drawings with a Chinese woman in a kimono holding a bird, a Chinese man wearing a large hat, a fountain overflowing with water and a an urn sitting on a tree with lattice work above and draping vines. On the small corner panels scrolls form a circle in the middle with a butterfly in each. These scrolls are painted in black with gold outlines. This is truly a piece to behold!!!
This jar is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Atelier Le Tallec was founded in 1928 by Camille Le Tallec and is known for its careful craftsmanship of Limoges porcelain created entirely by hand. Le Tallec's first studio was located in Belleville, France and is now since moved to Paris located at the "Viaduc des Arts". Camille Le Tallec's love for collecting time pieces, furniture, ceramics, silverware and pictures served as the inspiration behind each of his designs. Le Tallec did not paint the porcelain himself, but over saw the execution by his skilled workshop painters. Many of Camille Le Tallec's exhibitions led him to form artistic relationships with well known French companies including Puiforcat, La Marquise de Sevigne and Marcel Rochas. Le Tallec's most recent customer was American jeweler Tiffany & Co. After his death in 1991 Altelier Le Tallec became a wholly-own subsidiary of Tiffany & Co.
