I always loved this ornament which belonged to my Grandmother and knew nothing whatsoever about it other than my Grandfather rescued it from a bin of rubbish after the existing owner disposed of it during a house renovation. After my Grandmother died a few months ago my parents decided to put all of her possessions through a local house sale company to share proceeds equally between my Brothers and myself. So I ended up bidding on it because I could not imagine it going to someone else and thinking it would be worth spending a couple of £ to keep it. £550 later I was having a panic attack, confused and in shock at what had just happened. When I got it home, I looked on the bottom (having never been able to touch it at my Grandmothers) and it said "Essevi" "Nostalgia" and "Sandro Vacchetti" which after a bit of research turns out to be quite a name in ceramics I guess...
