Retro Ceramics - Italian - San Marino/Ceramica di Milano/Bertoncello/Italian Studio Pottery/Ceramics (3 items)
This section is dedicated to the incredible and iconic designs from the many Italian studios during the latter half of the 20th Century. In particular we stock items from Bertoncello and the San Marino potteries as well as items from some of the many unidentified Italian studio potteries in production during the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's. This is a very exciting area with the kitsch and modernist themes, colours, textures and glazes lending themselves extremely well to contemporary interiors. We're constantly on the lookout for these types of Italian ceramics and hope to bring you many pieces with the right 'look' and pedigree.

These types of ceramics sit particularly well with other Italian makes like Bitossi as well as the crazy ceramics from West Germany during the same period.

1960s Ceramica di Milano (Italy) Double Ended Bud Vase

code: MILANO-VASE
1960s Ceramica di Milano (Italy) Double Ended Bud Vase

I adore mid-20th century Italian pottery - especially the production from Ceramica di Milano and I think it's obvious why, they're so decorative.  This vase is doubly brilliant - in both the shape and the decoration (isn't the girl in spectacles fabulous?).  Quite unusual this one I think.  Designed to hold two individual flower stems.  It would make a charming and unique gift.  Fully marked to the base.

SIZE:  Height:  16cm  

CONDITION:  As one would expect with items of this vintage, there are a few signs of use - mainly one chip to the inside edge of the lower branch which can be seen clearly in the extra photographs provided.  There is no damage at all elsewhere on the vase that I can see - the rim of the taller branch is blemish free.  It doesn't, in my opinion, detract from the highly unique and decorative appeal of this particular item, however it has been reflected in the asking price.

1960s Italian Pottery Ashtray with a Leather Backing

code: ITALIANGIRLASHTRAY
1960s Italian Pottery Ashtray with a Leather Backing

This is a great piece of pottery - obviously Italian, from the 1960s and similar to the production from the Republic of San Marino although not from that region I suspect.  I haven't yet been able to pin this type of pottery down to a maker or region - sometimes it's mistaken for the work of Fantoni, some pieces have even had his 'signature' added at a later stage - however, that's merely wishful thinking at best - they're not by Fantoni.  This one takes a fabulously curvy form, is decorated with a groovy girl and the base is covered in a dark leather (a fairly customary feature for this type of pottery).  

SIZE:  Length  7.5in/19.5cm

CONDITION:  Good original/used condition - there are a few nibbles to the edge in places and the leather backing is rather scruffy however this has been reflected well in the asking price.

1960s Italian Pottery Vase

code: ITALIANVASE3
1960s Italian Pottery Vase

This is a great vase - obviously Italian, from the 1960s and similar to the production from the Republic of San Marino although not from that region I suspect.  I haven't yet been able to pin this type of pottery down to a maker or region.  This vase unusually has a white matte ground decorated with a glazed cartouche of a stylised girl and flowers and with a blue glazed inner.  Unmarked/signed. 

SIZE:  Height  20cm

CONDITION:  Good original/used condition - some of the white areas are a bit scruffy however.
