SUPER RARE - Bitossi Ceramic Ram mid- century pottery display with classic modernist orange and
SIZE: 8 3/4 inches long x 3 1/2 inches wide x 4 3/4 inches high
In 1921 Guido Bitossi formalised the Bitossi family’s artisan ceramic-making history by transforming their local craft into a structured and productive organisation, Bitossi Ceramiche following the long traditions of ceramic production in Florence since 1500, with over 7000 original pieces produced from the 1950s onwards, the original pieces have become highly coveted by collectors, particularly those of the iconic Rimini Blu collection. The new pieces are still produced in Florence using the same tools from the 1950s, each piece carrying the hand and the eye of the masterful ceramicist who gave it form. Over the decades the Bitossi artisans have collaborated with numerous designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Arik Levy, Piero Fornasetti and Mario Ferrarini
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
