Description

A stunning Italian ceramic pottery vase, with 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 vase is marked to the base, but I cannot make out the factory name. However the mark is very similar to the one used by the Titano factory. Similar items are shown in the excellent book Alla Moda - Italian Ceramics of the 1950's - 70's by Mark Hill.  

Size

Measures approx 4.5 inches tall by 2 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a nick to the base rim, shown in final picture.
