Apparently they've reissued the pieces, so these may be modern. If so they'll be a little smaller than the 60s originals

Picked up today - my first piece of Bitossi Rimini .
Assuming that's what it is of course ! Is there any way of knowing its age ? What does the mark tell us - also seems to have a remnant of an original (?) label

60s vintage plus or minus 10 years I'd say. The marks were retailer's and export codes so they don't really help
Label remnant could be a Raymor wholesale label

Thanks for that. Would it be designed and/or made by this Aldo Londi that seems to appear in any mention of Rimini?

He was the creative director at the company at the time

The Rimini Blu collection of ceramics was created in the early fifties by Aldo. This collection of vases and animals is characterised by their unique blue colouring and irregular texture. Today the collection is regularly the subject of research both for it’s artistic value, stylistic charm and historical importance, with each piece bearing the Bitossi stamp.

New addition to the collection. This is a Bitossi decor known as 'Scavo' - meant to look like it has been dug up in an excavation. Bitossi (Italy) - Page 5 14034710

This is a bit unusual. I was only happy that it was Bitossi after seeing the same form in different acknowledged Bitossi decors. I haven't seen another in this decor. Bitossi (Italy) - Page 5 Tortoi10

Certainly looks right for Bitossi but I couldn't say if it was an Aldo Londi design. Do you have a base photo?

Hi

Would this fall under the 'Spanish' Sagnolo range perhaps? May have to launch the photographs to get full image, sorry.

Cheers

Yes, I think so. The colours seem to be a mix of Rhimini blue and chartreuse yellow

"RRR/15"
"NJ"

assuming the 15 is the heignt... any one have any ideas what the rest means  ?

Sorry, but I cant seem to flip the picture through 90 degrees...

All thoughts glady accepted!

The piece is signed Italy and with code numbers which apply to the retailers or wholesalers they were supplied to, rather than maker's initials. Bitossi lost a large part of it's archive 20-30 years ago, so what most of the numbers refer to are unknown. However the sequence can be used to give a rough date - probably made in the 60s.

It’s by Bitossi, Italy. Probably from the 1960s, or at least MCM (mid century modern) imo. In a mix of  chartreuse and sienna glaze colours
