Large Italian Maiolica Glaze Albarello Shaped Vase with Sun & Moon Design (Code 1080)
A large brightly decorated Italian vase in the style of an albarello. It is of traditional maiolica glaze and painted with the sun and moon and a profile of a 17th century style man. It is large in size and in the shape of an albarello, but meant as a decorative vase. No makers marks, probably early 20th century in period. Very decorative and stylish.
Hand thrown and with glaze flaws and misses from production. Some crazing and glaze scrapes around the rim and base. Artisan hand made to reflect the 17th century look and style rather than a factory made perfect piece.
