This Raymor Italian 50s-60s Modern high-sided bowl stands 3" high by 10.25" in diameter. It has a pleasing deep bowl form, with high sides. It is deeply carved with a frieze of four women, in various poses, very sensual, and typical Raymor Italian-Modern style from the 1950s-60s. The panel with the women is framed with a thick band of carved horizontal lines, accenting the rim. The glaze colors are in shades of black and white, simple and clean lines. The expressions on the faces of the women, and their posture are very seductive. This bowl is marked Raymor, Italy. This piece hails from the Montelupo region of Italy, by Italian Modern designer Fratelli Fanciullacci, whose work screams mid-century modern. Fanciullacci produced a line of vases and other pottery forms with this design, described as 'unglazed chamotte clay'. This vessel is in original condition, with normal handling wear, but no apologies. It has a screaming 50s-60s Italian Modern appeal and would complement any room as a decorator piece all by itself. It would also make a wonderful addition to a Modern collection.
