    I picked this bowl/basket up many years ago at a fla mkt. for 2.50, I just love the colors and details, the one dragon forming the handle has a tear running out of its eye ,and there appears to be a baby dragon in the inside of the bowl in water, also the shields on eather side are dif as is the dragons,alot of detail , there are only 2 very very small nicks on the finish. I am at a total loss with this one, I have been searching for years trying to find something about this piece, any info like age, maker, anything! I would truely be grateful! Thank you!!

      Hi, your piece was made by Ulisse Cantagalli:
      "In 1878 Ulisse Cantagalli and his brother, Romeo, inherited the family ceramics factory near Florence. The shop produced copies of Middle Eastern and Italian tin-glazed wares and in time added earthenware vases with stylized animal and plant forms. Ulisse was famed for his ruby and golden luster techniques. In the 1880s, with encouragement from Mary Todd, his Scottish fiancé, he began exploring the principles of the British Arts and Crafts Movement, particularly in the revival of pre-industrial handcraft traditions. His mark was the cockerel, in some cultures a symbol of generosity, in others a symbol of pride."

      Enjoy your great piece!
