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.
