Bertoncello Midnight Fire Trailed Glaze Sculptural Cachepot Vase, 1970s-80s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available for pickup at our Oakville location.
This vivacious work of mid-century Modern Italian ceramic is by Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (estd. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The sculpted and abstract footed cachepot form is sleek and undulating, and further accented with twist-ring decorative handles.
Further elevating this piece is the high-gloss, sumptuous base glaze in seamlessly blended tones of the rare Azure blue and Fire palette gloss glaze. The sumptuous glaze uses the rich Azure as a base, applied in a glossy, seamless, and silky-to-touch manner. Overlaid onto the base is the fiery palette of orange tones in Flame, Sienna, and Brick that is interspersed with the deep yellows of Saffron and Goldfinch. The final glaze accent is the trails of Porcelain white edging the Azure blue.
The stylized form, eye-catching glaze palette, and excellent condition of this piece make it a rare find that can be displayed as a standalone piece or functionally as a cachepot.
