Italian Ceramic Stationery Holder in the Style of Alessio Tasca (circa 1960s)
Ceramic desktop letter and pen holder in the style of Alessio Tasca (circa 1960s). Although unsigned, this ceramic piece matches the sculptural style, colour and texture of works of the master Italian ceramicist, Alessio Tasca. Creatively utilitarian, it is at once a work of art yet sensibly functional. With two slots for documents and envelopes and four round openings for pens and pencils, it's a stylish addition to your desk at work or home and a conversation piece to boot. In good vintage condition with characterful marks commensurate with its age. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
