Guido Cacciapuoti Large Italian Pottery Figure Seated Lady, Vintage 1930's Italy For Sale
Vintage Guido Cacciapuoti
Vintage Guido Cacciapuoti
Outstanding large Italian pottery figure of a seated young woman in a peach colored gown. This piece is signed on the lower back below the bench with the incised full name mark “Guido Cacciapuoti” as well as with “Made in Italy”. This mark dates from 1931-1953. The figure stands 13” (33 cm) tall and has a width of 13” as well. The pillow at her feet is decorated with gold flowers. The bouquet on her lap has four varieties of flowers, each blossom hand formed in clay and applied to the piece. Her features are masterfully painted to create a truly lovely face.
Condition: This vintage pottery piece is in very good condition, with only a few extremely small flaws. The glaze has light crazing which isn’t present everywhere on the figure but can be seen on the lady’s upper body and here and there on the skirt. There is one small shallow chip that was reattached on the underside edge of the skirt hem, located on the right front lower edge of the piece (we have included two views of this chip). The lower edge of the pillow ruffle and skirt hem have a few tiny little nicks here and there, but they aren’t very noticeable. On the back of the figure, located on one of the folds of the skirt there is a very small chip in the glaze. Her hair has a small scratch in the paint on the back of her head. Overall the flowers are in great shape; we only found two small damaged areas. One petal is chipped on the rose that she wears on her bodice, and the tip of one flower stem is broken off. We have examined all the flowers carefully but found no other damaged blossoms.
