Ics Dolker/gambone Era Pottery Box Designed By Leopold Anzengruber, Signed For Sale
This sale is for a striking 1930’s Italian pottery box by ICS (Industria Ceramica Salernitana), designed and signed by the Austrian ceramicist Leopold Anzengruber (1912-1979). The cover features an African figure with spear and shield, along with geometric designs that continue around the sides. African motifs were to form a major part of Anzenberger’s work beginning in the 1950’s. The edge of the lid and the base are accented in the classic ICS mottled green glaze. The box is hand signed "LEO" in black glaze in one corner of the base, and it raisedlettering, as isthe name "Pearson", presumably a retailer. It is in excellent condition for this type of pottery with only 2 small nicks to the rim inside the lid and very slight glaze flakes to the edges of the box.No cracks, crazing or breaks of any kind. It measures 5” x 4” x 1.5”.There is not much information about Anzengruber’s early training. There would, however,appear to be a strong influence from Wiener Werkstatte pottery so he likely studied there. He worked in pottery workshops in Florence and elsewhere in Italy in the 1930’s and 40’s, including ICS and Zaccagnini. Although his stock biography has him returning to Austria in 1942, that seems unlikely considering the war. By 1948, at any rate, he had established Anzengruber-Keramik in Vienna, a thriving design and pottery manufacturing business which, by the late 1950's, employed almost 100 people. Anzengruber's death in 1979 led to the rapid decline and closing of his company.
