A stunning Italian ceramic pottery vase, with highly textured Fat Lava style finish, known as Smalto Roccia (rock glaze). Decorated with a Sgraffito design of a ladiies head. Several factories in the San Marino area of Italy produced ceramics in this style between the 1950's - 1980's. This particular vase is unmarked, but bears the remains of a label on the base which I have not been able to identify. Similar items are shown in the excellent book Alla Moda - Italian Ceramics of the 1950's - 70's by Mark Hill.  

Measures approx 6.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a little wear to the glaze around the rim, shown in 9th picture.
