Hi All.  I've recently found this piece in the North West of England and am wondering if it might be a piece of mid-century Bitossi.  Marked clearly on the base ITALY with the numbers and letters 14 YLO / 22 (I think) but unfortunately no B.  It measures 15 cms tall x 16 cms across at the widest part (end of handle to widest part of body) and weighs just over 550 gms.  Any help would be much appreciated.  I've added a number of images below.

I've come across these too. But I don't think it's Bitossi

Wasn't too sure myself - it was the blue and raised relief decor that made me think of Bitossi. Anyone any ideas of other makers?

The numbers were often retailer codes and design numbers

All.  After a long search on the internet I've found a couple of interesting items.  The first is that I think the mark on the base is 14710/22.  If you follow this link to an Italian ebay listing you'll see a very similar jug but with clearer marks.

Also I found this listing on etsy that shows a very similar shaped vase (especially the handle) that claims to be Fratelli Fanciullacci (you need to scroll to the bottom of the listing).  No evidence unfortunately.



I added an image of the handle of my jug - quite distinctive.

Any thoughts anyone?
