Very beautiful white-beige cracked ceramic.
Made by François Levallois, ceramicist active during the art deco period.
François Levallois (1882-1965) was a ceramicist trained in Sèvres. He bought the St. Radegonde factory in Touraine from Le Printemps store in 1939.
Appearing in the 1920s, cracks (crazed) are intentional and obtained thanks to a thermal shock, dipping pieces in cold water right out of the oven.
