San Marino Large Sculptural Flask
San Marino is a tiny republic in the East of Italy which punches way above its weight in the world of ceramics.
In a similar way to Murano glass production in Venice, it's mainly driven by several producers catering initially to the tourist and collectable business but has evolved into such a distinctive style that San Marino pottery has become 'a thing' in it's own right.
Here's a link to more information Italian San Marino Pottery
San Marino, more often than not depicts scenic buildings or an etched image of an elfin faced girl, this gem was made as a flask for a liqueur producer, with a cork aperture that would have held a stopper but could now be used as a vase.
It's a remarkable shape, with two columns only meeting at the top, giving a big extended holey teardrop shape.
In San Marino's classic black and white lava style with an etched 'sgraffito' girl on a red base at either end and a central flower pattern at the base.
No marking to the base so we don't know the actual producer.
Excellent condition 44cm high and 19cm at its widest.
