Bitossi (Italy) 'Rosso Warnecke' 11.5" Vase
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 cylindrical vase in the 'Rosso Warnecke' for German Warnecke, circa 1970s. It features a pattern consisting of circles, squares and dots that runs horizontally through the middle of the vase, in a vibrant red made specifically for the company.
It's in great vintage condition with no chips, cracks or major wear that we can see. There are a couple of spots where the ceramic has been repainted, however these can only be observed if you look closely!
Stands 29.5cm (11.5") tall and 15cm diameter.
