Unusual Italian Bowl with Unidentified Mark

Post by Clarehelen on July 11th 2018, 6:48 pm

Hello again,

I'm hoping someone might be able to help identify who made this Italian bowl. It is an unusual boat shape with a tree painted on the inside. The upper side has a slightly textured glaze while the underside has a glossy glaze.
The base is marked '2928 Hand Painted Italy' with a red flower above. I estimate it dates to the 1950s/60s. It is well made and painted and unlike any other pieces I have managed to track down.
It measures 13.5" long by 3.5" deep.
Any ideas gratefully received!

I think it’s the ‘flower painter’ mark: Ceramica il Quadrifoglio, Florence

Hi Naomi, I did wonder about that but wasn't sure because the flower in the mark is coloured and a different shape, the design of the bowl seems different and the glaze seems different to the other flower painter pieces I've seen? I'll have another search to see if I can come up with any more flower painter pieces that are closer to this and report back. Thanks, Clare
