Curious about this one. this is what I think I know about this piece.
I have for you today what I think is a fabulous Mid Century Elbee Fratelli Fanciullacci lava glaze pitcher with mythical lion/horse type motif. It is signed 30/52G Elbee Italy. It is done in a white and orange lava glaze with very wonderful gold highlights and a gold applied handle as well. This piece is about 9 3/4" tall by 6" wide at the curve of the handle. The opening is 4 1/4" at the spout.It is about 2 1/2" at it's narrowest point. The base is 3' across. These pieces are rare and difficult to find in as great of a condition such as this one. If anybody knows any more or if my attribution is incorrect.You see a lot of other types of Italian pottery. I learned about how the pottery was destroyed in a flood in 1966. maybe why they are harder to find?
