For your consideration, a Fornacetti-era Italian c. 1950’s-1960’s hand painted ceramic wall hanging. This magnificent example of Italian mid-century ceramic art is signed in the artist’s hand (the artist’s signature is not fully legible) as well as being identified on the piece’s reverse with the words "Marostica Alcyone" “Made in Italy” “Majolica d’Arte”, and “M.42 6”. The subject of the painting is of an Italian soldier with scythe and sword, which could have multiple meanings; inferring death, as well as a possible agriculture/military relationship. The work measures 20 ½” x 8 ¼” x 3/4” (52cm x 21cm x 2cm), and is excellent condition with no chips or scratches to its painted inner glazed surfaces. There are two small vintage chips located at the works inner bottom sides (see photographs). The draftsmanship is first rate in both it’s design and craftsmanship. The piece was created at the Maristica Alcyone ceramics works in the province of Vicenza (Provincia di Vicenza) a province in the Veneto region of northern Italy. One of the finest works of mid-century decorative ceramics I have come across in my collecting. Found in Southern California.
