Bitossi Chartreuse Turtle

A fantastic and hard-to-find Bitossi Italian turtle shaped sculpture with a rare mottled chartreuse green-yellow glaze color. Probably an Aldo Londi design, likely dates to the 60s-70s - this one has a taller shape that is closer to the turtle banks than the normal turtle. Have not seen many Bitossi animals with this interesting mottled chartreuse glaze. Unmarked on the bottom.

In good vintage condition, with no cracks or damage. There is some dust in the crevices, bottom has pad remnants. Some crazing throughout the piece.

Measures about 8" long, 6 1/2" wide, 3" tall.
