Midweek Modness: Decor Vivant Art Pottery Planter (Update)

Because I know so very little about ceramics and pottery, always exciting when I come across a piece — like this planter — that is marked. In this case, the underside is signed Decor Vivant Canada.

Unfortunately, signed or not signed, I have not been able to find any info about this company.

An aside: I’ve had this pot for a couple of years but because I was repotting the Jade plant that sat in it before, I thought I’d take the opportunity to clean the planter up and photograph it.

An update: Reader Genevieve sent this info — “Décor vivant” is the name of a series of planters and window boxes made by la Poterie Laurentienne in Québec. Their signature is usually “LP” for Laurentian Pottery “Canada”, but not on this series.”

I’ve gone into an Internet research rabbit hole looking at examples of these Laurentiennes. I feel another collection coming on!
