Bertoncello Screziato Sculptural Mid-Mod Double-Chimney Vase, 1960s-80s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available for pickup at our Oakville location.
This chic work of mid-century Modern ceramic is by Italian pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (estd. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The sculptural form displays influences of Modernist and even Art Deco Bauhaus architectural design, these are most evident in the dramatic curves which are shaped around the two opposing triangular apertures or 'chimneys'.
The sumptuous glaze is immensely silky that invites touch and one of two Bertoncello signature glazes, this particular shade is a refined blending of rich and Golden Ochre, tinged with Sienna which gives added depth.
Like many other Italian potteries that were popular during the mid-century period, little is known about the pottery but the exceptional quality of design undeniably speaks for itself.
