Fratelli Fanciullacci Tapering Vase

Fratelli Fanciullacci Tapering Vase, Italy 1950s

I picked up this stunning Fratelli Fanciullacci Tapering Vase recently. A hard to find design….here anyway.

This hand decorated piece has an exquisitely detailed design consisting of bands of sgraffito (drawn lines), a top band of multi coloured glossy flowers, which have been applied thickly like enamel.

There is a green leaf repeat pattern near the base, along with a charming trellis and beautiful little white enamel dots over the piece.

The base glaze has a very luxurious and tactile, sand like texture often found on Fratelli pieces.

Inside it is glazed gloss with a nice touch of a delicate yellow splatter design inside near the top.

This pattern appears in Mark Hill’s book Alla Moda on p124. There seem to be a number of variations of the form. This one tapers from a round base to a rectangular top, and is 21cm tall.

Marked “Italy 8117” to the base.
