1909

Bellini signed 12 inch 3 luster baluster vase the following information is courtesy of Guido Bitossi who shared it on October 18, 2013 in the Facebook group on Midcentury Italian Pottery & Bitossi.

This stunning vase is a product of the Bellini factory. The father started it in Lastra a Signa. When he passed, his son Arrigo and daughter Gioconda split the factory into two parts. Currently the grandaugher Sara is still involved in ceramics in a small factory. Arrigo Bellini worked and produced his ware in Montespertoli, about 10 minutes outside of Florence, Italy.

Signed Bellini, this vase is most likely from the 1960-1970 period and was made by Arrigo Bellini. Three different metallic luster surfaces in a very geometric pattern form the decoration on this stunning vase.

It is in excellent condition. Add it to your Midcentury Italian pottery collection today

2822

Bitossi Raymor midcentury 4 piece smoking set Bitossi Raymor midcentury 4 piece smoking set. The covered box is marked 43/15 Italy. There is also the price 1.00 on one corner. Amazing! The 8 inch long x 4 inch wide box has two very minor paint flakes on the inside rim of the bottom. The 7 inch tall lighter is signed 43/14. The two 5 inch long x 3 inch wide ashtrays are marked simply ITALY with the standard Bitossi mark.

The design on the set consists of a solid orange with the design on the top of the box, the middle of the lighter, and the bottom of the two ashtrays being interlocking circles and squares, a very geometric pattern. Some of the diamonds thus created are painted in green, yellow, red, and brown but they are done in a random order, very Midcentury in conception.

The price is for the set.

Click for more detail...

7851

Bitossi yellow Spagnolo Londi vase (as is) This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular yellow, brown, and chartreuse colors from Bitossi. The vase stands 7 3/4 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide at its widest point midway up the vase. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.

The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Spagnolo which is the Italian word for Spanish. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by Moorish tiles. The form is a traditional Italian form but the decoration is pure Mid-century.

Good vintage condition but there is some damage which is why I marked it as is. On the underside of the lip of the top rim, there is one small area where the glaze has flaked off. The body of the pottery is not damaged but the glaze flake is evident. I never repair or touch up my items so you may if you wish.

This vase without damage is valued at over 100 pounds in Mark HIll's recent book on Mid-century Italian pottery. With the glaze flake I am happy to pass it along for a little more than what I paid.

The bottom carries a standard Bitossi mark. The shape number 27071. The word Italy is impressed in the base. The original owner added many small felt pads around the edge and larger ones to the middle to protect the surface upon which this candleholder sat.

Click here to enlarge image and see more about item 7250: Bitossi Italy large 12 inch Vetrata vase

Click for more detail...

7250

Bitossi Italy large 12 inch Vetrata vase This elegant vase is typical of the work of Bitossi – or more precisely the artistic wing of Bitossi called Flavia - where Aldo Londi, was Art Director from 1946. Based in Montelupo, Tuscany, Bitossi exported pieces from Italy under both the Raymor and Rosenthal Netter labels.

This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using a chocolate brown, orange, and yellow combination of colors in a high gloss glazed vase. This combination of colors was used extensively by the Rosenthal-Netter line popular in the 1950s-1960s from Bitossi. The vase stands 12 inches tall and is 5 1/2 inches in diameter at the base. A very large striking piece which weighs almost 5 pounds!

This is known as the Vetrata pattern (windowpane).

The middle of the vase is decorated with a series of triangles over what I believe was a base white glaze. The triangles are outlined in the chocolate brown glaze. It is in excellent vintage condition and would display well on a Eames McCobb era credenza! There is small glaze skip on the top rim but I believe this happened in its manufacture.

It is signed on the bottom 941'A and the famous conjoined IT Italy mark. It most likely carried either a Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter paper label.

Click for more detail...

7182

Bitossi Bagnoli Brutalist wide Fish vase This vase stands 7 inches tall and is 3 inches wide at the mouth. It is done in the Brutalist manner of the late 1950s-early 1970s. The surface of the terra cotta vase is covered with a chocolate base glaze over which a spattered layer of glazed was added to add texture over which the colors have been applied, with thick black lines outlining the colored sections. A bland band is at the bottom and the top Above the bottom black band there is a band of black diagonal lines. A very abstract bird with orange eye and tail circles the vase. The body of the bird is done in yellow with black lines separating the yellow sections. The same horizontal aquamarine color band outlined in black can be seen in three different places on the vase.

The vase is in excellent condition. The piece is signed simply in capital leters MADE IN ITALY with a sans serif font as opposed to the Toscany pieces with a serif font for the word 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.

Click for more detail...

5813

Bitossi mid century sgrafitto Egyptian vase 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.

3198

Bitossi Londi Italy covered cigarette box Bitossi Londi Raymor 8 inch long x 4 inch wide Rimini Blue Bitossi green/blue covered cigarette box, with original circular paper label stating Made in Italy, signed Italy 955 in black ink. One can always tell the Bitossi items by the way the I and T are conjoined in the word ITALY.This was made by the well-known and highly respected Italian firm of Bitossi.

This covered cigarette box is extremely heavy. It has a textured Londi Rimini blue surface onthe outside bottom and a hand-tooled surface decorated with what I call the Raindrop pattern, rows of indentations which give it depth and texture. As with most of the Bitossi heavy covered cigarette boxes one finds, this one has a few small chips to 2 of the inside corners of the box (see photos) . However, the lid is in perfect shape, which is hard to find.

It is a rough textured lavender pink hue. The top was made with fused glass in shades of red and white. A very good Mid Century piece of pottery! Excellent condition. No damage.

This was worked on by Guido Bitossi himself as one of his first jobs at Bitossi. On October 15, 2013 he stated in the Midcentury Italian Ceramic & Bitossi Collectors & Sellers Facebook group that: " This was my real first "job" in the factory. Nothing special off course...just to cover the colors with a granular transparent frit, using a spoon, before go into the kiln."

I am honored to own a piece with a personal collection to the Bitossi factory.

Click here to enlarge image and see more about item 7258: Bitossi Rosenthal Netter 5 leaf Bark vase

Click for more detail...

7258

Bitossi Rosenthal Netter 5 leaf Bark vase This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular sgrafitto popular in the 1950s-1960s from Bitossi as well as some sprigged on two tone leaves. The vase stands 7 1/2 inches tall. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics as it is carries an original paper label.

Also known as Richards Morgenthau & Co., the New York-based company Raymor was a well-known American distributor of modern domestic products, evolving from Russell Wright Accessories, with which the company's founder, Irving Richards, had been linked since 1935. The company's range included designs by Gilbert Rohde, Donald Deskey, Walter Dorwin Teague, Ray and Charles Eames, George Nelson, and Eva Zeisel. In the post-Second World War period Raymor also imported modern Scandinavian and Italian designs, including work by Arne Jacobsen, Tapio Wirkaala, Hans Wegner, Ettore Sottsass, the Bitossi designers Aldo Londi, and Alvino Bagni. Bitossi designed a wide range of ceramics in the late 1950s and 1960s for the Raymor importing company.

The body of the vase is done in what I call Aldo Londi's Bark or Earth background in which the chocolate brown body of the clay is glazed with a clear glaze to contrast the vivid colors Londi loved to use. It seems that the Rosenthal-Netter line was a brighter toned line than the Raymor Line. One sees a lot of yellows and oranges on the Rosenthal-Netter line.

This particular vase is from a line called in Italian Foglie Colorate Applicate (Applied Colored Leaves). This particular line was produced from 1960 to around 1970. It features five sprigged on two-tone abstract stylized leaves done in that very popular style of the 1950s. The stems of the flowers of leaves have been incised into the body by the sgraffito technique so beloved by Londi.

In addition to the original paper Rosenthal-Netter black and white paper label, there is also an original factory label with carries the stock number 240/3 and the words Made in Italy.

This vase is valued at over 100 pounds in Mark HIll's recent book on Mid-century Italian pottery.

The piece is in excellent condition and would be a star addition to any Raymor Bitossi Londi collection.

6100

Bitossi Moderna Marocco Aldo Londi planter This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter large planter designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The planter stands 6 inches tall x 7 inches wide at its widest point. 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. A second label with the words Made in Italy stamped on one side in red and the numbers 266/15. I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/. I have to conclude that the 15 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 for the planter in this rare pattern is a bit more reasonable.

Click for more detail...

7881

Bagni Rosenthal-Netter Green Blue Spiral Vase Alvino Bagni (1919-2000) founded Bagni Ceramiche in Lastra a Signa in August 1946. During the 1950s and 1960s he worked closely with Irving Richards of Raymor, the American distributor, as well as with their competitor, Rosenthal-Netter. The United States became Bagni’s largest market with over 80 percent of the company’s production going there. Thousands of modern designs were produced over four decades. Though it is not possible to categorize Bagni’s work easily, the wax-resist technique, impressed geometric shapes, mottled brown or green glazes and high-relief geometric forms applied to the surface are hallmarks of his work. Many designs were also glossily glazed in bright colors in simple stylized patterns such as banding or swirling lines. (Mark Hill, Alla Moda).

Red clay was used from the late 1940s-1950s, before a finer white clay was used. Bagni considered his "Sea Garden" design to be his version of Londi’s Rimini Blu design. The factory closed in 1992.

As far as signatures, production destined for Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter was often marked in different ways. The first and most common Bagni for Raymor mark is a painted mark comprised of an ‘R’ for Raymor, followed by a three or four digit number. This number is probably Raymor’s internal stock number. The second way is a Raymor paper label printed with ‘BAG’ and a similar number. Some Bagni pieces for Rosethal-Netter were marked with two digits, followed by a slash, followed by two digits. This was often accompanied by a paper label (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 216)

This Bagni vase is signed 30/3 Italy. The underglaze is done is a crackled glaze, an imitation of a famous Chinese glaze, and the predominant color of the glaze is a white with a spiral pattern of green, turquoise and cobalt blue rectangles. The inside is the same green used on the outside.. It is in excellent vintage shape with the exception of two pinpoint flakes to the glaze on the top rim. There is no damage to the body under the missing part of the glaze. All in all, it is in very good vintage shape for its 40 years.

The vase stands 8 inches tall x 5 inches at its widest point. Add it to your collecton of Midcentury Italian pottery, Raymor or Bagni today.

5820

Bitossi Rosenthal-Netter 8 inch Paisley vase This elegant vase is typical of the work of Bitossi – or more precisely the artistic wing of Bitossi called Flavia - where Aldo Londi, was Art Director from 1946. Based in Montelupo, Tuscany, Bitossi exported pieces from Italy under both the Raymor and Rosenthal Netter labels.

This vase carries a rectangular paper Rosenthal-Netter label. The name Rosenthal-Netter is white on a black rectangle within the label which also states CREATED IN ITALY FOR. There is also an impressed ITALY into the bottom of the glazed bottom vase, along with the numbers 69/3. It is in excellent condition.

The pattern was created by creating small depressions in the body of the piece before firing, along with the sgrafitto technique of incising the lines forming the outlines of the paisely motifs. The red clay base body is glazed in a harvest gold color with accent colors of pumpkin orange and avocado green. So Midcentury Modern! So Eames era! So fifites and sixites!!

Add it to your Italian Bitossi Flavia pottery collection today!

7226

Toscany Empoli Tree Bark vase Toscany Empoli Tree Bark vase standing 7 inches tall x 4 inches across the top. The vase is signed with a black stamped Made in Italy mark only. The interior of the vase is glazed in a matte brown glaze. The exterior of the vase uses the sgraffito technique to incise knots into the pattern. There are three colored vertical panels repeated three times on the piece. A raised button has been decorated in gold. Black lines have also been added to give it a more naturalistic look. It is in very good vintage condition.

The silver paper label is in the shape of an artist's palette. On it are the words TOSCANY under which the words HAND MADE, HAND DECORATED, and MADE IN ITALY are found. I do not know which company made the vase or if TOSCANY was the importer.
