This large and wonderful Italian artisan-made plate measures 13" in diameter and is 3" deep, and weighs approximately 5 ½ lbs. Signed "Ceramista D'Art Campagnaro Fabrizio e Loriano, Lucca", and with the intials "F.L.", it is in perfect condition, save for one chip to the bottom rim. The depth of color is magnificent, as is the central canine motif that is painted in a wonderfully animated, yet elegant, manner. Ceramiche d'arte F.L. s.n.c. was born in 1965 with the name Ceramiche d'arte Orgia s.n.c., an Italian company founded by three members: Campagnaro Orfeo, Gastaldello Antonio and Battilana Giovanni. The piece, which features a grayhound as its central motif, is most probably from the mid 1970's and a wonderful piece displayed as a wall piece, or as an elegant vintage centerpiece in your mid-century home!
