Italian Art Pottery Wall Hanging - Mother and Daughter - Limited Edition Fontana

This captivating, delicate little plate was hand-made and painted in Italy. The artist is Fontana and this is a limited edition. The lovely scene is a mother and daughter in long dresses and with bonnets. The mother has a wonderful bright red purse! Both of the ladies were done as raised (bas relief) figures, adding both to the texture and dimension of this piece. Behind them is the pathway that leads to the large home in the background.

The colors are pretty and yet bright--one look and you know it must be Italian. It’s such a charming scene. Sweet enough for a young girl’s room and yet sophisticated enough for an adult. The back indicates that it was hand crafted in 1973 for Mother’s Day. How appropriate! This would make a lovely gift for your own mother or for a new mother!

Condition: Very nice! It was made with a piece of very thin clay (think pie crust) that has been hand crimped along the edges. The edges are not perfect nor are they meant to be -- the handmade look is what makes this dish so lovely. There are initials - V.F. on the lower right side. On the back, it states that this is number 1520 of a limited edition of 2000. The glue around the hanger has darkened.

Size: 7” diameter
