Vintage 30s Tarcisio Tosin Italian Pottery Figurine Skier Figural Lenci Era Deco For SaleVintage 1930s Tarcisio Tosin Italian Pottery Figurine Skier Figural Lenci Era-representing a girl with blonde hair and a fashionable ski ensemble of the times. This is a vintage figurine made by Tarcisio Tosin in the form of a skier. Two breaks with very old glue repairs. Very small flaking on the hair do. Signed twice, once on end of ski and underneath with additional markings. Tosin opened his studio in Venice in 1932 and chose an arrow as his mark, naming it “La Freccia de Tarcisio Tosin”. To Tosin, the arrow was representative of the ability to fly through time and space, hitting the mark and thereby containing the elements of the Italian “Futurisimo” movement, referred to by Italians as “Aeroceramica”. He won the Veneto Institute of Arts & Crafts Gold Medal during that first year in business. In 1934, he entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Faone Scardin, but part of the agreement was that the letter “FS” appear with the arrow mark on Tosin pieces. (information courtesy of Walter del Pellegrino’s book Italian Pottery Marks). This piece has the arrow mark without the FS initials, so can therefore be dated to between 1932 and 1934, an early piece of Tosin. The back of the ski is signed “T Tosin”. The figurine measures 8 1/2” in height and has a length of 6 1/4” along the skis. It weighs 395 grams (14 oz). It is in good used condition with the exception of a few fleabite type glaze flakes to the hair do. Excellent quality piece and a wonderful addition to a collection of figurines from the golden age of Italian ceramics...
