Alvino Bagni was born in Lastra a Signa, Italy, in 1919, and from a young age he began to take an interest in ceramics. Thanks to the teachings of an elderly artist, Torello Santini, he got a job in the workshop of Arnaldo Pugi’s ceramics factory in Ponte a Signa.

After WWII, Pugi gave Bagni the financial support to help him open his own workshop. Alvino took several family members with him, including his wife Gina, who accompanied him throughout his career. The 1950s and '60s were fundamentally important for the Bagni company, which succeeded in establishing privileged relations with a number of important names in American design and business, including Raymor and Rosenthal, for whom he created extremely modern items for that time.

A fabulous ceramic vase in a gorgeous floral decor, circa 1960s. The colourful flowers are finished in a glossy glaze against a matte black background. Because of this, the colours absolutely pop!

This beauty is fairly large too, coming in at about 40.5cm (16") tall, and about 20cm wide at its widest point.

It's in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or wear to mention. Note it still has its 'Made in Italy' paper/foil label on the base.
