Fantastic, monumental orange and gold covered jar or canister made in Italy and distributed by Rosenthal Netter. Have seen this design attributed to Aldo Londi. Came in both blue/gold and orange/gold, but haven't really seen one of this size. Great looking floral spiral design in gold leaf, orange and brown striped sides, with jar lid completely covered in gold leaf. Would make a fabulous statement in a midcentury modern setting, either on top of a table or even on the floor. Marked on bottom with "49-4A Italy", missing the Rosenthal Netter sticker.
In good vintage condition, with no cracks or chips. Lid has two small flakes to the gold, see photo for example. Some light crazing. Body has 2-3 small flakes, mostly to bottom near gold - believe some of these are related to manufacturing - overall these pieces often have roughness, due to being made by hand.
Measures about 17 1/2" tall with lid on, 4 3/4" wide across middle, 5 1/4" wide at bottom.
