Circa: 1963-1975
Manufacturer: Bitossi, Flavia, Aldo Londi, Montelupo, Italy
This is a striking Bitossi Italy candleholder using the very popular yellow, brown, and chartreuse colors from Bitossi. The candleholder stands 6 1/2 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide at the base. This candleholder is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.

The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Spagnolo which is the Italian word for Spanish. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by Moorish tiles. The form is a traditional Italian form but the decoration is pure Mid-century.

Excellent condition. The bottom carries a standard Bitossi mark. The shape number 27064 and the word Italy are painted in black. The original owner added seven small felt pads to protect the surface upon which this candleholder sat. Add it to your Italian Midcentury pottery collection today.
