Decorative Vintage Italian Ceramic Vase by C.A.S. Vietri (circa 1950s)
Vintage Blue ceramic vase by C.A.S. Vietri (circa 1950s). In the style of Guido Gambone, this stunning piece features decor of four people in various poses and activities in a chalk-white enamel with brown outlines separated by long, vertical stripes. The vase is vibrant turquoise, somewhat muted with age, in a backdrop of craquelure. A work of art which surely inspired the master ceramist, Guido Gambone. Or was it the other way around? In overall good original condition with no repairs or restorations. Delightful! Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. On the underside: 'C.A.S. Vieti Italy 433'.
