Orcio 6

Orcio made by Antonio Vanni of Impruneta
Price each

Stamped Antonio Vanni, Impruneta. We can date this as being produced in the 1830s as we have another one in the collection stamped Di Carlo Vanni e Antonio Figlio (son). Carlo was born 1798 and produced at the Vanni kiln from 1820 -1868; Antonio joining 1834.

This is a very large Orcio at 120cm high, it has a lovely patina with plenty of natural ageing consistant with its age and use as ornament in the estate gardens. Part of the rim has come away at some stage and there is some wear on the rim at the foot. None of this is recent and it just adds more character.
