Vintage 50s-60s Large Ceramic Horse Sculpture Turquoise Blue Londi Bitossi Italy
Signed & Numbered

Rimini blue
the HORSE
By Aldo Londi Bitossi
Italy
Large and in charge!
This big handsome fellow has some chips and dings from age, see photos, but that doesn't detract from his incredible style and savoir faire! A nice big, bold ceramic piece from the noted Italian ceramic studios of Londi Bitossi - who made the iconic large, bold ceramic pieces that graced chic mid-century homes in the 50s and 60s - they were especially known for their beautiful glazes, particularly tuquoise - aqua - and cobalt blue.

"Designed by Aldo Londi for Bitossi throughout his long career as art director.
Rimini blu line is identified as Bitossi's signature. It has been in production since 1953. It features articles embossed by hand with the typical texture of rimini blu. Each piece is impressed with the Bitossi logo that certifies its origin.
Every piece of Bitossi's collection has been made by hand by master ceramists. Also decorations have been painted by hand, piece by piece, with precious glazes and firings. Small imperfections that sometimes can be noticed witness the originality and the craft manufacturing process of the product."

This gorgeous ceramic horse looks especially stellar grouped with items that will enhance his bold size and coloring, I like him with the blue Murano glass snifter and bowl that I've posted - imagine this lovely beast gracing a low table in front of a big bold abstract painting ( in Oranges and Fuschias -- of course!) , the ultimate in 60s swinging style.

Measures approximately 12"H x 13" L x 6.5" w

Please check photos, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask - this vintage piece is priced with condition described and shown in mind.
