    So, I have to say that I am not a huge fan of Capodimonte generally, sorry all you guys out there that love this stuff, but I am curiously attracted Tiziano Galli's later 60's figurines and sets. I really don't know why exactly, maybe because some of it is utterly bonkers or that it is generally less sentimental than the drunk leaning against the lampost or cute kids under umbrellas type. Anyway - I love this piece, and Galli's other 'single female' figurines. This is simple sexy, cute and pretty big - stands about 22in in height. It's the only piece of it's type I own - just thought I would share.

      I was just looking at some of them !!!

      He was born in Milan in 1908. His sculptor father Angelo influenced him and he then became a pupil of Giuseppe Castiglioni and later worked with him. After studying at the Istituto Tecnico in Milano he did some evening courses in design at the Scuola Superiore degli Artefici dell'Accademia di Brera.

      In 1935 he set up his first studio in Busto Arsizio where he worked in marble and later added on a kiln for ceramic work. In 1938 he met Maria Bolla and worked with her on the production of her important ceramic pieces. They married in 1942.

      World War II's end saw him set up a studio in via Ambrogio Figino 11, Milan called
      "Galli & C." that soon became successful. In 1949 he moved to larger premises in via Giannini where he employed 6 workers.
      Even more success meant another move to Via Niccodemi 5 where the firm grew to more than 30 workers. The catalogue of this period of production lists 150 models and figures inspired by daily life.

      Yet another move in 1954 to Aicurzo enabled expansion that included exports all over the world. In 1955 the firm moved back to the area around Milan where he continued to produce until 1984 .... including some works in porcelain.

      He died at Castel Negrino di Aicurzio, in the province of Milano in 1986. His widow continued production until 1988 when she handed over the moulds to Roberto Brambilla who kept producing them until 1991.

      Tiziano Galli muore a Castel Negrino di Aicurzio, in provincia di Milano, nel 1986 ma la vedova porta avanti l'attività fino al 1988, anno in cui cede gli stampi a Roberto Brambilla che prosegue la produzione fino al 1991.
      Il ceramista Tiziano Galli, nasce a Milano, nel 1908.
      Si avvicina all'arte nello studio di scultura del padre Angelo divenendo poi allievo e collaboratore dello scultore Giuseppe Castiglioni.
      A Milano, dopo gli studi all'Istituto Tecnico, frequenta i corsi serali di disegno alla Scuola Superiore degli Artefici dell'Accademia di Brera.
      Nel 1935 apre il suo primo laboratorio artistico a Busto Arsizio, dove inizia con la realizzazione di sculture in marmo e successivamente mette un forno per la cottura della ceramica
      Nel 1938 conosce Maria Bolla che collaborerà in modo importante alla produzione delle sue ceramiche e che nel 1942 diviene sua moglie.
      Sospesa l'attività per gli eventi bellici nel 1945, fonda a Milano, in via Ambrogio Figino 11, una manifattura ceramica, la "Galli & C.", che presto ottiene successo
      Nel 1949 sposta i laboratori nei più ampi spazi di via Giannini, dove impiega 6 collaboratori.
      Il grande successo ottenuto dalla produzione lo porta a cambiare nuovamente sede e trasferisce l'attività in Via Niccodemi 5 dove la ditta da lavoro ad oltre trenta persone
      Il primo catologo di questa produzione presenta circa 150 modelli di statuette e figurine ispirate alla vita quotidiana
      Nel 1954 ancora uno spostamento della sede in una filanda in località Aicurzo, in provincia di Milano, permette alla produzione di espandersi e le ceramiche vengono della ditta sono esportate in tutto il mondo.
      Nel 1955 lascia ai soci la ditta e si trasferisce nelle campagne di Milano dove continua a lavorare fino al 1984, realizzando anche opere in porcellana.
      Tiziano Galli muore a Castel Negrino di Aicurzio, in provincia di Milano, nel 1986 ma la vedova porta avanti l'attività fino al 1988, anno in cui cede gli stampi a Roberto Brambilla che prosegue la produzione fino al 1991.

      Awesome info vetraio50 - thanks so much!!
    5. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Notice not a mention of Capodimonte!
    6. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Roberto Brambilla is the link with Capodimonte ..... 1988 to 1991.

      Yours is in another league completely. More like Lenci et al. IMHO.
    7. philmac51 philmac51, 7 years ago
      Yes.... maybe it's because some of his 'sentimental' stuff just looks like Capodimonte and maybe he has become somewhat synonymous with that type of work. This info is really interesting vetraio50.
    8. philmac51 philmac51, 7 years ago
      Yes very Lenci like - I was aware of that, but forgot to put it in my original comments.
