Large pottery vase made in Venice circa 1955 by San Polo, Encircling the vase are sculpted three dimensional Comedia Dell' Arte figures that stand out from the surface of the vase. All are handpainted and the dark background has colored streamers and stars. Signed on the base and with a drill hole to allow it to be fitted as a lamp. The only damage I could find were a couple of very small glaze flakes, no repairs or restoration. Stands 15 1/2" tall and is 6 1/2" wide at the widest. Great dramatic example of mid century Italian ceramics.
