Item details

Vintage from the 1980s


matte black, glossy coloured panels, signed, ceramic


Height: 32.3 Centimetres; Width: 9.5 Centimetres

A tall and striking ceramic vase designed by Alvino Bagni in the late 1970s or early 1980s, so circa early 80s. Most likely produced for Rosenthal Netter.

It has a stained glass design - glossy raised panels of complimentary colours resembling a stained glass window, over a matte black ground with a glossy turquoise interior. It is hand signed on the base with 'V59/G32 Italy'. The base coat on the coloured panels was pale blue and this has been overpainted with darker blues, orange, green, red, and purple. Hand painted with four horizontal divides and other geometric dividing lines. It has been done quite quickly and slap-dash using a stencil or wax resist technique - if you look close up you can see colours bleeding but straight exact divide lines.

It is a tall cylinder vase (32.5cm x 9.5cm). Weighs over 1kg. There are no chips or cracks, has the correct 'ring' to it. The matte black is susceptible to marks and it has some small scratches here and there which could be touched up. There are couple of patches/marks where you can see the lighter coloured clay below. There are areas of paint bleed/dots/splashes from time of manufacture. Overall I'd give it a 8/10 - it's good with small marks. Please see all pics.

Very striking! Prefect for display in a retro home.

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

Items weighing under 2kg total will be posted by 2nd class Royal Mail. If it's a high value item I'll add Signed For. Items weighing over 2kg will be posted by Hermes, and if they are high value I'll add Signed For. I may not be able to post to some areas of the UK, such as the Channel Islands, but I'll give it a good go! I'll try to post within 24 hours (when Post Office opening hours allow).
All postage abroad will be by Royal Mail's International Tracked and Signed service, so will need signing for your end. Please say if you'd prefer just a Tracked service instead. I can't post anything that weighs over 2kg or is larger than a 'small parcel'.
I have specially chosen these items to be of superior quality and condition for their age and era. All my items are vintage (25+ years old) and may naturally have some wear and tear which may not be in the description. I have written everything to the best of my ability, and tried to describe any obvious flaws. The photos also help to show the condition - please view all photos and read the descriptions.
For lower value items I'm happy for you to provide the address and unique code for a UK onward mailing company, but I cannot accept responsibility for any damage or non-delivery beyond the mailing company's address. Once the UK mailing company has safely received the parcel it is no longer my responsibility.
Why buy new? Buy vintage, and help protect the planet. You're rescuing vintage pieces for future generations. Also, please don't bin my packaging - save, re-use and recycle. Thank you.
I use large bubble bubble-wrap with strengthening card and sturdy cardboard boxes. I often double box for safety and I re-use old newspapers to fill any gaps. I have been selling on Etsy for over five years and know and trust my packing. Jewellery is posted in small sturdy cardboard jewellery boxes, in a mailing bag. (Please re-use or recycle any packaging!)
UK free postage is factored into all my prices... I think UK customers like to see an upfront price including postage with no hidden surprises. Sorry I can't offer free post worldwide.
