Description

A stunning Italian ceramic pottery vase in the shape of a boot. Several factories in the San Marino area of Italy produced ceramics in this style between the 1950's - 1980's. This particular piece was made by the factory Fratelli Meloni, which was founded in 1954 by three brothers, Cesare, Vittorio and Romano Meloni. A year later the company became Libertas (active 1955 - 1982). Marked to base "F.lli Meloni, Rep. S. Marino", a rare marking to find, as this name was only used for one year. Similar items are shown in the excellent book Alla Moda - Italian Ceramics of the 1950's - 70's by Mark Hill.
