London Porcelain Cup Brushed by W. Potacki for AS Ćmielów

The London Cup is a design by Wincenty Potacki, created in 1962 and currently produced by AS Ćmielów. The cup with saucer is a part of the London service, which is handmade of the highest quality porcelain and then hand decorated with liquid gold. The product has a special protection in the form of under- and glazed signs. The products have, among others, the factory logo placed underneath. A certificate of authenticity is attached to the set, which includes information about manual production and decoration, as well as information about the product (name, name of the designer, year of design). All products are packed in a dedicated, elegant gift box and are ready to be handed out as a unique gift.

In the 1950s and 1960s the period of searching for new styling solutions began. Porcelain services started to serve not only a functional but also a decorative function. The forms of the dishes had to be adapted to the requirements of modern man and modern interior. Work on new forms first led to the elimination of unnecessary details. The main idea was to simplify the shapes as much as possible and give them a modern look. Tableware, especially coffee services, began to resemble abstract sculptures. The material itself and its processing techniques also had a great influence on the appearance of these objects.

Geometry of utility forms progressed, and the dominant forms were the cone and cylinder. Jugs, dairies and confectioneries became thinner or took on more rounded shapes. Their spills became elongated or reduced and merged with the form of the vessel.

A perfect example is the June service by Wincenty Potacki.

Wincenty Potacki (1904-2001) was a graduate of the Municipal School of Decorative Arts and Painting in Warsaw. In the pre-war period (1935-39) he worked in the porcelain factory in Ćmielów and its subsidiary, the factory in Chodzież (1939). In the years 1947-1949, he was associated with the "Wałbrzych" Porcelain Factory in Wałbrzych, then in the years 1949-1950 with "Karolina" from Jaworzyna. Between 1950 and 1955 he worked as a teacher at the Ceramic Technical School in Bolków. From 1955 in Ćmielów, where he worked until his retirement in 1991.

He is the author of several dozen service designs, including the "Feston" cut, which is still produced today. The most popular models designed by Potacki in the 1960s include Krokus and Goplana coffee services. The designs designed by Potacki have been awarded many times at trade fairs, e.g. in the "Ładne - Dobre - Poszukiwane" competition of the National Fair in Poznań.
