Bitossi (Italy) 'Carta Florentina' 9.5" Vase, in Orange
In 1921 Guido Bitossi founded the "Maioliche artistiche Guido Bitossi" factory, proposing a type of production linked to the tradition and classical styles of the past, combined with research and a study on the ceramics products.
Starting from the early 1950s, the company’s evolution powerfully manifested itself in a modern vein under the artistic direction of Aldo Londi, a man with an innate creative and aesthetic sense, and a keen eye to the changes in the taste and the uniqueness of the Italian products.
Londi entered Bitossi in 1946 and from that time on was the undisputed protagonist for more than fifty years, first as a painter, then as artistic director, and finally as tireless researcher of styles and examples to be emulated.

A fabulous ceramic vase in the Carta Florentina decor, circa 1960s.
It's in great to excellent vintage condition, with very little surface wear. No chips or cracks, but the large one does have a very small glaze flake which can be seen in the last picture.
Incredible piece, in an incredible colour. We believe the orange version of Carta Florentina was produced for the Australian market.
It stands 24cm tall.
