8719

David Gil Bennington Bull Raymor #1240 plate David Gil Coop Design 6 1/8 inch round x 3/4 inch deep plate with rough unglazed bottom and yellow tinted outside rim, signed with incised signature 'David Gil' and 'bennington'. The deeply incised mark and the dark base color of the clay seen on the back of the plate as well as the orange tinted rim place this plate into the early period for this 1240 shape series. Both the bottom and the bottom of the side rim are unglazed.

The pattern of this plate is a very abstract one, depicting a Bull or Steer with horns. I have nicknamed this piece Lascaux Bull as it reminds me of the cave paintings there. In my 2013 interview with Gloria Gil, she stated that David Gil was inspired by the discovery of the Lascaux caves in France in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the same year David graduated from Alfred University and started Cooperative Designin Bennington Vermont.

The body is done in a simple line technique of blue and black. The eye is turquoise blue and there are two brown spots on the side of the animal. What is interesting about the brown spots is that you can also see hints of the turquoise blue color coming through them. The glaze over this must be a type of semi-matte glaze as the colors are muted.

This is a hard to find variation of this early period 1240 shape.

In addition to the standard early period david gil bennington signature, it also shows the outline of the original Raymor paper label which was placed right over the bennington signature. Excellent condition. It was part of the Raymor line. Many of these early period 1240 plates are still found with an intact Raymor label or the shadow of the sticker. Gloria Gil told me that Raymor approached them in 1953. Their association with Raymor last 20 years until 1973.

David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.

After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.

In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced.
