Nice large bowl or charger by noted French artist Gilbert Portanier (1926-). It measures about 18.5" wide and has raised applied domes and stylized faces with a nice iron red glazed rim. It is signed on back as shown and is in remarkable vintage condition with a couple tiny edge bites and perhaps a missing small dome near the face. Nice and heavy.
