I did say i was new to this and failed to upload successfully a picture of the front of my fish dish. I noticed the mark has shown up so here goes again! You will find the mark a couple of posts below. Many thanks and really hoping some clever person will recognise the work of this potter!

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

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 .

You can always contact Bitossi directly http://www.bitossiceramiche.it/bitossi/
I had similar issue with unmarked Bitossi piece, they were very helpful and responded within a few hours.

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.

Just because it looks like Bitossi, doesn't mean it is by Bitossi.
This vase was bought by a tourist 15yrs ago from an established family pottery in Sardinia and is stamped on the base Sardartis Castelsardo.
Bitossi is part of the much larger Gruppo Colorobbia which supplies the same clays and oxides used by Bitossi worldwide, so anyone can produce their own Bitossi-style range of ceramics if they wished.

Bitossi (Italy) - Page 3 Dscn8325

Bitossi (Italy) - Page 3 Dscn8326





Bitossi also cleared up the mystery of this pot. They provided Bitossi items to SARDARTIS, which was owned by Mr. Marras, who was their customer in 1982-90 but then he started making his own Bitossi-style copies such as this vase.

Than he started to produce copies in a small factory in Umbria…specially small animals. We were not able to call him in Court. We can tell you if a single item is a copy or real…hope you can..! Animals copies are smaller than original.

Be aware that Bitossi's Aldo Londi and Sottsass designs have been re-released. google markanto.de for the list.

Hi

I have these two pieces, pretty certain they are old Bitossi and not remakes. Any ideas on prices? I've checked a few of my books and not got very far, also the internet is quite unreliable in terms of pricing!
