A lovely, rare Bitossi Italian sparrow or robin bird with the Scavo decor. Light brown/pink clay construction with lacy bubbled matte glaze, hints of white and brown glaze, and incised feather lines on body. We haven't yet seen this form before in the Scavo decor. Unmarked on bottom, but two partial tags - one is "Made in Italy 74/25" and the other is a Joseph Magnin sticker.
In good vintage condition with no cracks or damage. Some glaze aberrations, pops, lines, crevices from firing and manufacturing - some extra glaze has been rounded off, particularly on the tail. As these are hand finished items, there is variation in the clay and glaze. Dust and dirt here and there.
Measures about 8 1/2 inches long, 6 inches wide, 5 inches tall.
