Description
A stunning large Italian ceramic pottery vase with highly textured Fat Lava style finish, known as Smalto Roccia (rock glaze). Has hand painted Effetto Lacca (enamel effect) San Marino scene. 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.

Measures approx 13 inches tall by 7.75 inches in diameter at widest point.
