Circa: 1974
Manufacturer: Bitossi, Flavia, Aldo Londi, Montelupo, Italy

This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter large vase designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The vase stands 10 inches tall x 7 1/2 inches wide at its widest point and a circumference of 23 inches. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.

The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Moderna Marocco which is the Italian word for Modern Morrocan. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by the blossoming studio pottery movement of the 1970s. As Hill states, high quality designs such as this took longer to apply and were more expensive, making them rare today. Unusually, this design does not include sgraffito or impressed elements.

Excellent condition. When tapped, it rings solidly. Original Rosenthal-Netter paper label with the words Made in Italy stamped on one side and the numbers 266/2. I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/. I have to conclude that the 2 is the shape number and the 266 is the number for Moderna Marocco.

In the Mark Hill book, the 10 inch version of this rare vase on page 72 is valued at 300-500 pounds. My price is a bit more reasonable.

Add it to your Italian Midcentury pottery collection today.
