Another Fratelli Fanciullacci Find
Its always interesting how things pop up out of nowhere …in multiples. A few weeks ago I found THIS piece by Italian maker Fratelli Fanciullacci…and last week I found another from the same series at an auction. Its quite a rare design by this maker and the chance of finding another so soon even rarer.
This quite large bottle form features the same bright and bold cloisonné or stained glass style pattern, hand painted in bright multiple colours, outlined in white tube-lining onto the piece with the same matt brown, oxide washed, brown coloured and carved faux woodgrain pattern.
Inside again is an intense and vibrant lime green gloss glaze. The only difference between the two pieces is the carved treatment which is carried over onto the base with this example.
