A beautiful vintage seated teddy bear pottery piggy bank/money box. Made in Italy and stamped/signed to the base with '0500 Italy'. It was previously believed this these pierced eye figurines were Bertoncello, but it's now decided they are most likely to be SICA (later became SICART and CAI).

I believe this little fellow is 1970s vintage, and the figure has been decorated using styling/colourings from this time. He's a glossy muted grey blue (like an ocean blue) with the distinctive pierced eyes, and yellow and deep red drip-glaze trim. He's been hand decorated and has a white clay base. High gloss glaze (hard to photo due to reflections).

Pottery/ceramic shaped moulded teddy bear with adorable smiling face. Original plastic stopper to the base makes it very usable. 15cm tall x 9.5cm deep x 13.5cm wide.

Very good vintage condition with no chips - perfect for a modern or mid-century home. More for display for a grown-up, than for a child's toy - although it would look fab out of reach in a nursery!

Includes P&P to the UK.

Absolutely love this little vintage pottery fish money box. Exactly what we were looking for - it looks super cute and will complete the aquatic theme in a newly decorated room. It arrived quickly and was very well packaged. Great service from CocoCollectables, will shop there again :)

I am so delighted to have found this gorgeous piece. A beautiful glaze, colour and form from one of my favourite West German makers Karlsruhe. It fits in perfectly with my collection (here it is with a bigger sibling). Sam was great to deal with: it came very carefully packaged and was dispatched and delivered promptly. I’d happily shop here again.
