I smile every time I look at this particular piece of pottery. It is hand painted and bright and expresses simple happiness.
This pattern is part of a group of artist signed Italian Mid Century Modern pottery. The size of this particular piece suggests it can be used to serve pudding to small children or to hold change when you empty your pockets, or to hold small savories at table or .........
Clearly signed "Nino Parrucca" and marked on the bottom "Made in Italy Art 251"
No chips, cracks or missing bits. The blue glaze is very shiny. The red and orange glazes are textured. I have seen this pottery referred to as majolica.
