A fine example of Aldo Londi’s mid-20th century rustic, Provenzale design for the serious collector of historic Italian BITOSSI Pottery decorated with stylized flowers.
Master ceramist Aldo Londi (1911-2003) spent the most of his long and successful career creating exceptional work for Italian ceramics manufactory Bitossi Ceramiche.
Now considered to be an institution in Italian ceramics, the Bitossi family and Vittoriano Bitossi Foundation have amassed an archive of over 7,000 historical documents and materials in relation to their ceramic production. The collection is housed in the Bitossi Artistic Industrial Museum, which in 2011 became a member of the Italian Association of Enterprise Archives and Museums. In 2014, Bitossi Ceramiche became an official member of the Registry of Italian Historical Companies, appointed by the National Union of Chambers of Commerce.
There was an article written about a Bitossi collector’s collection and this vase was included in his collection.
Colors include shades of green, brown, and orange, with a yellow glazed background, and black accents.
Provenzale was produced in the late 1950’s to the early 1960’s.
Measures 7.75 inches tall.
Original Rosenthal Netter tags still attached to the underside. The main tag reads: Created in Italy for Rosenthal Netter, Inc. and the other paper tag is the original Bitossi tag that indicates the model number: 54 / 3
Condition is excellent.
