Set of 6 Retro Orange Plates 1960’s, ‘Fat Lava’ / Vallauris pottery

These are a stunning bright retro set of 6 Orange ceramic plates, made circa 1960’s.

Very Striking with their glossy Orange Majolica style glaze, mottled and flamelike with areas of black and grey, like burning embers.

The bases are glazed in a contrasting black, with no markings.

Super stylish and Fantastic to have a set of six, perfect for adding a splash of vintage colour to any table or kitchen.
