Lovely old waste can from Italy, Florentine art at its best, the typical gold gilt and hand painted colors on gesso over wood or other materials. This one has the gold gilt combined with lovely pale robin egg blue on the two sides with gentle scalloped upper borders. It measures 11 & 1/2" tall, and the top opening is 8" by 10 & 1/4". It is in good structural condition with some chips here and there, see photos, one on a side at the corner seam, a few on the upper border, etc. Still in very nice condition. and easy to touch up any places you wish with paints from your local craft store. Original label on the bottom "Florentia" , one of the most famous companies in Italy that made this type of item.
