Bagni (Italy) Floral Lidded Jar | Pink
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 lidded jar in a fun floral daisy decor, circa 1960s. The white flowers on the dark pink backdrop just pops!
This beauty is a compact size, coming in at about 7.5cm tall and 13.5cm wide at its widest point.
It's in great vintage condition with no major wear, but there are a couple small glaze flakes on the rim of the lid and some bumps within the glaze itself, all as per the pictures.
