Italian Majolica Tin glaze Lustre Ewer Paolo Rubboli
This beautiful and lustrous ITALIAN EWER is actually documented online; you can see one exactly like it which toured in 2010 with "THE RUBBOLI COLLECTION," in their video of Italian lustre pottery made from 1830-1890. Play the video and take it to 5:41 and pause it to get a glimpse. It is likely, also, to be featured in the book of the same name, by Marinella Caputo, but we do not have that book.

Such a lovely, late 19th to early 20th Century piece, created by the Paolo Rubboli Factory in Italy's Gualdo Tadino. The foot and neck are twisted by design, and hand-painted in lustre glazes to accent those twists; fanciful mythological creatures, griffins, grace the body of the ewer, bearing wings and polka dots; a stylized Roman urn is painted in the very front, with splayed acanthus leaf foot; acanthus leaves encircle the shoulders of the vase. Turn the spout upside down to see another fanciful creature -- a cross between a duck, a goose, and a crocodile. Our photos do not adequately convey the shine to the glaze, nor the lovely true coloring; please trust us when we say that it is much better looking in person.

It measures about 11-1/2" tall, 6" handle-to-spout, 5-3/4" body diameter, 3-1/2" base diameter. This piece has literally been stored most of its life, and it is free of damage of any kind, with however, normal wear to the base. $22 US Shipping.
