Circa: 1950-1960
Manufacturer: Toscany Company, Empoli, Italy

This vase stands 7 1/4 inches tall and is 3 3/4 inches wide at the mouth. It is done in the brutalist manner of the late 1960s-early 1970s. The surface of the vase is covered with a spattered base over which the colors have been applied. thick black lines outline the colored sections. two yellow bands ar at the top and bottom. Red triangles form the middle with a blue band above and below. The inside of the piece is glazed in a terra cota glaze. There is one 5/16 flake on the inside rim of the top. The piece is signed simply in capital leters MADE IN ITALY.

This funky and retro Mid-century pottery was probably made in Italy by the Toscany Company, of Empoli Italy. Empoli is a town in Tuscany about 20 miles south of Florence. Empoli is also not far from Montelupo, a famous center of Italian pottery made for export to the United States. The silver label seen on identical pieces seems to be restricted to the 1945-1970 time period.

Another possibility is that it is from the studio of Bruno Bagnoli, who worked for Bitossi at Montelupo. Perhaps lesser known here in the United States than Aldo Londi, he nonetheless is well represented in Italy. His work can be seen on pages 160-161 in the book titled Novecento Ceramiche Italiane, Volume 2, by Emanuele Gaudenzi.

Add it to your Midcentury Pottery collection today. This would look stunning on a McCobb, Parzinger or Eames piece.
