A wonderful plump Bitossi Italian penguin figurine designed by Aldo Londi. Charcoal gray to black matte rough glaze, with applied beak and sculpted wings, incised decor with blue and green glaze accents. Have seen these in a variety of different colors and glaze treatments. Unmarked on bottom.
In good vintage condition, with no cracks or chips. Some dirt, white marks and roughness to the matte glaze surface. A few manufacturing marks and lines, pops to glaze, dust in crevices. A bit of crazing in the green and blue areas.
Measures about 6 1/4" tall, 4 1/4" widest.
