About Fratelli Fanciullacci: The brothers Fanciullacci was a prolific Italian pottery, whose work is starting to become more widely known and is keenly sought amongst collectors. As a style it is hard to pin down as there were so many styles produced – on a variety of clay bodies. Also, because most records were lost in 1966 after the biggest flood of the Arno River since 1557, it is hard to identify and correspond designers or artists with a particular form. The production facility was near Florence. After the flood the company lost many of their best staff and lost the spark of creativity they once had. They ceased trading in 1988 and their best pieces are dated before 1966.
