A superb piece of Hungarian art pottery, from the 1960s. Janos Török, (Mezötúr, 11. Juli 1932 - Pécs, 13. September 1996) was employed as a designer at Zsolnay from the late 1950s, but also had a small studio at home.
This is a fine abstract, 1960s, "mother and child" figurine. It is interesting that Török's use of Zsolnay's black eosin glaze suggests that this prototype was originally destined to become a Zsolnay production.
This piece is hand-signed, unlike most of the production pieces for Zsolnay.
I have not found any trace that this item went into production.
