Description

I bought this at a yard sale of an older couple. They got this as a wedding gift in the 1950s. It is a Mid Century MICA, Italy Numbered Ceramic Angel Fish Bathroom Soap Dish made by Manifattura Italiana Ceramica Artistica in Italy. It would look stunning in your retro 50s or 60s bathroom on the counter.

The base is a very pretty turquoise with gold and the Angel Fish is purple with Red, Purple & Gold stripes and Gold and Blue on the fins.

I couldn't find another one of these anywhere on the internet.

Here is some info on these hand made, numbered ceramic pieces from Italy:
"MICA. Manifattura Italiana Ceramica Artistica, was established in 1928 by the Ciampi siblings, Giulo, Giannino and sister Gianina. The family operated in Sesto Fiorentino, a suburb of Florence. The company was active until the late 1950's. The extensive use of gold, which requires a third firing in the kiln, was indicative of their work after the end of World War II."

This looks much better in person than it does in my photos. Very well taken care of, the only flaw I found by accident was a very small chip on the very top fin of the fish. I missed it at first it is so small. Remember this beauty is almost 60 years old.

The size is 9-1/4" tall, 10-1/2" wide & 8-1/2" deep.

Shipping: I will always err on the side of caution and use a bigger box with more cushioning to prevent breakage. Priority includes insurance for the item. If not priority, insurance can be added for an additional cost.

For international shipping please message me for a quote before purchasing.
