It was made in about 1975 and signed by the artist, G. I bought this from the artist in Deruta. It shows 2 winged, Italian Putti dancing in the clouds, surrounded by butterflies, flowers and birds. There are 4 spout-like protrusians alternating with 4 round holes (see last picture) which are then used to make a magnificent flower arrangement.
It is in as-new condition as I have never even filled with water in all these years! It is in perfect condition: no chips, cracks or damages and no crazing.Notice on the foot, it shows some very tiny original glaze-skips... Quite common in pottery of this type. It is heavy: over 4# UNpacked. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions or for additional pictures. And, if you like this one, have a look at another tulip vase I have listed.
