Marked A15 Italy.  Measures about 7-3/4" wide x about 6-1/2" tall.  Although it is not solid, has a bit of  weight to it.  I was hoping to receive any thoughts on this one!

Well, it isn't Bitossi, I'm fairly sure. It doesn't look like their style, and the mark's wrong. Yes, they did make banks though, with the penguins maybe being the most famous. I found a tortoise bank last week.

Marked A15 Italy Rocking Horse Bank - 1960s Bitossi, Aldo Londi design Empty Bitossi?

Thanks Alex! I felt the same actually but had to get another opinion! Any ideas on a possible age? I understand that is a big question! Maybe just a decade? I have just always loved this and was recently told it resembles the Bitossi / Londi style - so it makes me curious!

Try asking on the Midcentury Italian Ceramic and Bitossi Collectors Group on Facebook

That can happen if you have high security settings on your FB page which prevent admin from seeing your posts and interests

:-) Thanks - I don't share much at all on my FB page, so I doubt I would get added regardless. But thank you very much! It seems this piece I posted is some sort of knock off..... but I do love it!

Unfortunately if there's not much on your FB page it makes it indistinguishable from spam accounts :(

Thank you - is this piece of any interest to the group? I do so love Italian pottery but can't really afford any!! I would love to join and learn - and would love to share this horse. Not sure how to identify myself on facebook! barbara.conner.75 may work.
