Antique Italian Ironstone Bowl – A Whimsical Art Decò Treasure! 🐶🐱
📏 MEASUREMENTS: Diameter 5 1/2″ (14 cm), 3″ (7.7 cm) tall.
Discover the charm of a bygone era with this beautiful and rare antique Italian ceramic café au lait bowl. Its base, transitioning from light beige to green at the edges, is adorned with a delightful scene featuring a cat and a dog in front of a fence. The decoration, rendered in tones of grey, black, yellow, and brown, is a masterpiece of stencil and airbrush techniques, perfectly capturing the Art Decò style.
This exquisite piece bears the mark of “Società Ceramica Italiana, Laveno” and dates back to the 1930s-1940s, offering a true glimpse into the past.
The bowl carries a beautiful antique patina, and while it has a small old rupture at the foot, it tells a story of a well-loved item. The interior side reveals charming tea-staining and the gentle signs of its journey through time.
Embrace the imperfections and patina that come with age, as lovingly documented in the photos. We invite you to examine these images closely before making your purchase.
