It's Italian. The mark is composed of two sets of numbers and the word Italy below. It might be by Bitossi but unless there's a B after the numbers it's impossible to tell.
It might well have been commissioned by the wholesaler Raymor.
Nice piece.

I've always assumed the numbers were for the shape and the decoration, but I could be wrong.  It would be nice if a manufacturer's pattern book ever came to light with the numbers all listed, along with a description of each piece.


Edited to say, the numbers on Bitossi pieces were often retailer codes.

Unusual Bitossi baby(?) elephant.
I wasn't able to find another one like this on the web -- so has to be crucially rare Laughter

Very odd . Presumably the label is the retailer and its unmarked because its a commissioned piece, but there were factories copying bitossi so difficult to be certain unless its mentioned in one of the books on bitossi

They did a yellow-green mix called chartreuse, and this looks a blue - red/pink mix. I expect they had a nice name for it. Might be mentioned in Mark Hill's book. Unfortunately I don't have a copy.

Shape looks similar to a Holmgaard bottle. There are other Bitossi bottles on google images, but not with this shape or pattern. Retailer is German, and it's unmarked, so possibly commissioned from Bitossi via Raymor.
Bay did something similar to Bitossi, but you'd expect it to have the West Germany mark or Bay pattern numbers on the base.

Hi, I have never found a piece of Bitossi with gold decoration, coupled with the design and lack of correct signature, I suspect this is in the style of rather than by. There were so many factories around Italy during the 1950s/60s cashing in on the new tourist trade and I suspect this is a very nice example from one of these factories. kindests emma

Can't recall seeing anything with gold decoration but I have seen some weird and wonderful Bitossi pieces listed on US ebay which we don't see in Europe. the numbers looks right for Bitossi. It may well have been a special commission from a US retailer, ordered from Bitossi via Raymor .

Rare Bitossi Parrot
29.5cm tall. 8.5x10cm across bottom of base.
Paper label says Ceramica Sarda de Muntoni Plero. Initially thought it was made in Sardinia, but assured by Bitossi that it is one of theirs, and was retailed by Muntoni Plero through his company Ceramica Sarda in 1970-75.
