How Old is this Italian Raffaellesco Jug and Maker ID please - I .T

Post by ClaraIreland2 on Tue Oct 06, 2015 11:52 am

I know the pattern is Raffaellesco and from its condition etc. I think it is very early. I have tried lots of sites to try to identify this one without success. Any help much appreciated. Frustrated

I believe they still make them. I had one which was a 19thC copy, which was why I could never ID the mark. Yours looks like a 20thC copy.

Hi Clara

Walter over on the forum linked below is an expert on Italian ceramics and should be able to give you a good idea.

But I doubt what you have is as old as the design or as you hope. I am not an expert but contrary to some peoples belief that quality of the painting on these things did not improve with age. The very oldest are some of the best painted. The items I have seen that match the quality of your jug are nearly all tourist items made in the last 50 years in France, Spain and Italy. Those tend to have almost no secondary value.
