MetHome: vallauris pottery

As seen in this month's Metropolitan Home, this exquisite vintage "trompe l'oeil woodlike ceramic" juice set is from "late 50's Vallauris." Honestly, I've never heard of the term "Vallauris" and i'm thinking it has to do with a certain region/style? If anyone knows more, please enlighten us!! Anyways- it was highlighted as part of the amazing home feature of Kate Hume and Frans Van der Heyden. Killer house AND killer faux bois vintage find. (sigh...)
UPDATE: fellow woodnut Justin, sent us this link about Vallauris (thanks Justin!!)
