Description This elegant and sophisticated ceramic pitcher was designed by the celebrated 20th century artist Guido Gambone, crafted and hand painted in Italy, circa 1960. It features a conical body with a cylindrical neck and a flared base banded in a pale chartreuse hue. There is a rectangular off white form in the center of the front with two rows of vertical striations in a rich coffee tone framing a line of stacked chevron forms. The undulating handle has horizontal bands running across it.

Guido Gambone is one of the most acclaimed and influential Italian ceramicists of the 20th century. Inspired by a range of sources- including cubism and Art Brut- and known for his sophisticated color palates and thick, glassy glazes, Gambone produced inimitable designs that are unmistakably his alone. He began his career at the local Avallone pottery, continued his training at Manifattura Artistica Ceramica Salernitana and later at the esteemed I.C.S. (Industria Ceramica Salernitana). He was promoted to artistic director at I.C.S. in 1935. He later started his own ceramic studios, La Faenzerella in Vietri and later La Tirrena in Florence. After a storied career, Gambone passed away at the age of sixty, in 1969.

This piece, with its beautiful craftsmanship and sophisticated color palate, this piece embodies the qualities that discerning collectors of first rate Italian Mid-Century Modern ceramics (and Gambone's work in particular) absolutely adore. With its clean lines and Classic form, this piece is as versatile as it is visually compelling, blending perfectly with any style of interior from Classic midcentury to contemporary. The piece is signed "Gambone Italy" and painted with his proprietary 'donkey mark'. Excellent condition.
