A rare wonderful Bitossi Pumpkin Italian pottery rectangular vase. This striking pattern is sometimes known as Onion as well as Pumpkin, and comes in both this colorway of brown, yellow, green, orange, black designs on yellow, as well as one that features blue, red and white. Rectangular form rough clay construction with oval opening at top. Would look great with a collection of Italian or Mid Century Modern ceramics. Marked on bottom with sticker reading 230/4A, there was also an original Rosenthal Netter sticker but it fell off.
In good vintage condition, with no cracks or damage. There is some whitening on the glaze at least 2 places, after inspection appears to mostly be part of the manufacturing glaze process but some may be slight wear - see last two photos for closeup. Some light crazing mostly visible on the yellow sides and bottom.
Measures about 7 1/2" tall, 5 3/4" by 3" wide.
