    Trio of vases by Italo Casini
    Sesto Fiorentino, Italy
    Circa 1955
    5" high

    Italo Casini was born in 1892 in Tuscany. He trained at various Florentine ceramics manufactories and landed at the Fantechi manufactory in the 1930s. Sometime around the Second World War he opened his own business, Ceramiche Casini, and it remained in production until the early 1960s. Source: http://www.archivioceramica.com/CERAMISTI/C/Casini%20Italo.htm. I can't find more history about Casini. Please share if you have some.

    I took the photos using only sunlight and without any digital embellishments. These darlings need no help to sparkle.

      I have a small Casini pitcher. It is my understanding that pieces were designed to look like crusted ancient Roman artifacts that had been under the sea for hundreds of years (from shipwrecks).

      strange that it seems another man with the same name was born in Tuscany in 1892

      Italo Casini (March 9, 1892 – November 16, 1937) was an Italian bobsledder who competed in the early 1930s. At the 1932 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, United States, he finished fifth in the four-man event and sixth in the two-man event.

      Conte Italo Francesco Niccolo Casini was born on March 9, 1892, in Soiana, Kingdom of Italy. He died on November 16, 1937, in London, England at the age of 45.
