This chalice shaped bowl is clearly marked on the bottom "Hand Made in Italy Florentine 18". It's hard to believe the Handmade, this item is wonderfully done. It is a vintage piece, but in very good condition. The pottery is perfect, no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. The only loss of gold trim is a bit around the base, and not much of that. A square larger bit I think you can clearly see in the first pic at the bottom is the only real missing gold I can see.
The bands that you see are actually raised and ribbed, with gold on the raised part. The florals are beautifully painted, or transferred, not sure which because it's that well done. It's not like anything else I've seen. Good eye candy!
Stands about 5 1/2 inches tall, and is the same across. It's substantial for an end table or mantle.
Thanks for looking!
