This stunning 10" tall Italian Vase captures attention when used on a table. The body is bright white, paneled, scalloped flared rim, and footed. It has a 4" diameter base. It has lavish gilded handles. Yet, it is the superb applied decoration of strawberries, flowers, and leaves that make it beautiful. It is marked on the bottom " A Mottahedeh Design Italy" and in gold S. 6051. The vase is gold gilded on the rim, handles, and base. With age there are minor flaws. Three applied delicate raised leaves have tiny chips. The applied flowers and strawberries are fine. The Vase body is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing.
Mottahedeh is a company started in 1929. Their items were made in Italy and Portugal for the U.S.A. market. Many items were based on historical models or direct replicas sold through luxury retailers.
I have listed separately in my shop "Linda's Enticements Antiques" a matching Tureen item 1737#7762.
