Sgraffito Italian Art Pottery Wall Plaque Ischia Scenic
This art deco hand-decorated Italian faience wall plaque measures 15.5" across. The scene is carved into the clay and then colored by hand in cheerful pastel and earth tones. Stunning piece and very colorful.

A legend at the bottom reads "S. ANGELO - D'ISCHIA," identifying the romantic subject matter, for which you can see a photograph on this website: www.santangelodischia.info/. There are fish and sailboats in the waters around the edge of this island paradise.

No chips, hairlines, or repairs. Do note that there are several short firing cracks in the sky area, which are not bothersome nor harmful to the integrity of the piece (these occurred during the making).

Hand-painted signature reads FORIO and D'ISCHIA.
