Vintage Italian Frutti De Mare Majolica Topiary Centerpiece
A fantastic Italian majolica topiary featuring a sculptural Frutti De Mare (fruits of the sea) arrangement of fish, crabs, mussels, a large lobster and lemons. What is really taking this topiary to the next level is the incredible metallic lustreware glaze on the basket and all the seafood giving the piece a beautiful glowing iridescence. The red lobster is the only one without the metallic glaze and it creates an artistic contrast.
It is an absolutely magnificent coastal centerpiece!
14.5"L x 12"W x 9.75"H
Made in Italy for Vietri circa 1980
Great vintage condition, a few small chips particularly on the lobster as to be expected with age but nothing significant or distracting
