EXQUISITE MID 20TH CENTURY MODERN ITALIAN DESIGN!
Presenting a spectacular vintage Bitossi Italian Studio Pottery lamp base!
This large and impressive piece has a wonderful clean-lined modernist form, bold impressed geometric pattern and a rare and unique colour combination.
This exquisite tall, cylindrical piece has been magnificently finished in a rich, deep blue glaze with dry brushed horizontal bands of burnt orange brushed atop. Three wide protruding bands encircling the form have been beautifully decorated with an impressed geometric design and glazed in an earthy cream toned glaze.
The stunning impressed design is more random and abstract than usual, with wonderful sputnik / modernist / eames era appeal. The rare glaze colour combination adds to the appeal of this unique and individual vintage piece.
The gorgeous thick and chunky, gritty nature of the clay has been left unsmoothed below the blue and orange glaze, adding a fabulous textural element to the design and contrasting beautifully with the smooth cream impressed bands.
This exquisite piece would make a perfect feature for any retro, modernist, eames era or contemporary styled home!
This lamp is presented in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are a few exceptionally minute, fleabite sized nibbles to the glaze only, noticeable only on extremely close examination but mentioned for complete accuracy. Most would never even notice these let alone mention them. This lamp is presented in working condition, but as with all vintage electrical items, should be tested by a qualified electrician for safety. This piece has been exceptionally well cared for and presents spectacularly.
This most impressive Bitossi Italian pottery lamp base stands approx 455mms tall excluding the original fitting and measures 150mms in width. This large and impressive piece weighs in at 4.25kgs unpackaged.
This fabulous piece is beautifully marked to the base with an impressed "Italy" stamp along with a brushed numerical code "523/45"
This exquisite piece would make a fabulous addition to any Bitossi or vintage Italian pottery collection.
This impressive sculptural lamp base would make a fantastic feature in any modernist, retro, eames or mid century modern style space.
A perfect gift idea for the discerning admirer of individual and unique, fine quality, hand crafted, artistically designed vintage objects of sheer beauty.
