Help With Identifying Mid Century Italian Horse Pottery

Post by redangoravintage on June 27th 2016, 10:00 pm

Hello! My in-laws received this unusual piece of Italian pottery in 1964. I am trying to identify the artist. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi redangoravintag & welcome. You have picked on a notoriously difficult country with many small local potteries. I'm still trying to track down some mark on Italian ceramics, it's not an easy one...

Thank you, 22 Crawford St! I've tried to identify this piece off and on over the past couple of years, to no avail. Definitely seems to be a tricky one! I thought I might finally try a forum for some help. Thanks so much for checking out my post. :)

Don't give up... ID ing ceramics is often not a 10 min thing - it can take years. ... and this is a very helpful place with people who are extremely knowledgeable / helpful but you have picked one of the hard ones!

The Midcentury Italian Ceramics and Bitossi group on Facebook has an archive of Italian pottery marks for difficult pieces like this

Thanks to everyone for their help! I think it's such a cool piece. My mother-in-law said that when she received it as a wedding gift in the 60s, she thought it was the ugliest thing she had ever seen (!!) but as the years passed, it grew on her and eventually became one of her favorite items. She had it displayed in her home for almost 50 years before passing it on to us. Happy
