Hand painted Majolica, Bitossi Della Robbia full size cup and matching saucer. Hand Painted and Marked. White painted glaze underneath. Overall fantastic vintage condition. No chips cracks or staining. I have 2 sets available, and both are wonderful. Priced for 1 cup with its matching saucer. Also listing matching plates. During the Second World War the Bitossi factory was miraculously spared from the destruction inflicted on the other local companies by Allied bombs. In order to remain in operation Bitossi was forced to begin producing their own ceramic glazes, frits and colors. When the war ended Bitossi began supplying the entire region with Bitossi-made glazes and fruits. By 1947 this developed into the establishment of a separate Bitossi-owned company originally called Della Robbia Ceramica Colorificio and later changed to Colorobbia.
