A Fratelli Fanciullacci Find
A recent find by Italian maker Fratelli Fanciullacci
This stunning looking mid-century piece of Italian pottery features a bright and bold cloisonné or stained glass style pattern in multiple colours.
The bright, bold colours are tubelined with white at the top, and there is a rustic matt brown carved pattern resembling woodgrain running down the sides. The brown colour comes from a clay slip applied to the terracotta clay body after being carved.
Inside is an intense and vibrant lime green gloss glaze.
The style of outlining areas of colour is one that Fancuillaci pottery used often, but this particular design seems quite rare – I could only find 2 other examples of it online, and none documented in books that I could find.
