SOLD

Here is an extremely decorative small Italian ceramic plaque in the Fantoni/Gambone style of a very high gloss glazed finish colourfully decorated with a stylised candelabra, a bottle, an onion and a leaf on a bright red splashy ground.   This would have been made originally as a good luck/tourist souvenir and probably dates from the 1960s.  In a great triangular shape, with a hanging hole to the back and marked with 'Buena Fortuna ALASSIO' this is a really fab piece of retro pottery.
