Circa: 1974
Manufacturer: Bitossi, Flavia, Aldo Londi, Montelupo, Italy
This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter vase designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The vase stands 6 1/4 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide at its widest point midway up the vase. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.

The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Moderna Marocco which is the Italian word for Modern Morrocan. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by the blossoming studio pottery movement of the 1970s. As Hill states, high quality designs such as this took longer to apply and were more expensive, making them rare today. Unusually, this design does not include sgraffito or impressed elements.

Excellent condition. Original Rosenthal-Netter paper label but the numbers are gone. I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/.

In the Mark Hill book, the 10 inch version of this vase on page 72 is valued at 300-500 pounds. This is the smaller vase in the same line, thus my lower price for it.
