Circa: 1945-1970
Manufacturer: Bitossi, Flavia, Aldo Londi, Montelupo, Italy

This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular sgrafitto technique popular in the 1950s. This vase most likely was part of the Raymor line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.

It stands 10 5/8 inches tall and is 4 1/4 inches wide at the base. The heavy red base clay is glazed in a whitish tan glaze. Using sgrafitto incising, the decorator created a large Egyptian figure carrying two pots. There are also three cartouches on the back where the clay has been carved out and enamel dots have been added.

The condition is very good considering this type of decoration is quite fragile. There is a small flake at the rim that happened long ago. I see no other damage. There are areas of the vase where the sgrafitti left some areas without the white underglaze but this is not damage.

The colors of the figure are yellow, orange, blue, red, green with a pink face, brown body and hair. I have not seen many other Mid century Bitossi pieces with this decoration. The base also carries the initials VP. It appears that the botte vase may have had a cork as there is still one inside the vase.

Add it to your Mid century Italian pottery collection today.
