Chacota

The SECLA III unit from the fábrica SECLA (Sociedade de Exportação e Cerâmica, S.A.) ceased its production in 2008. After its dismantlement the remaining finished (glazed) or unglazed (chacota) ware was sold by weight.

From these pieces, Estúdio – Caldas da Rainha acquired a batch of chacota pieces belonging to the collection Secla Vintage that in 2005 recovered models initially produced in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s of the past century.

The new colours are an approximation to the original glazes, based on contemporary glazes produced in the Olfaire (Caldas da Rainha) and Arfai-IGM (Aljubarrota/Alcobaça) factories, where the pieces were finalized.
