Today we are happy to present for sale a fabulous vintage majolica serpent-handle portrait vase!
This vintage, Italian-made, majolica pottery vase is finely crafted and detailed. The baluster-shaped vase features dramatic, Renaissance Medici-style decorations, with two pairs or swirling golden serpents for handles. The piece features a gold/yellow, teal and blue vivid color scheme with geometrical and floral decorations framing a medallion central portrait of a gallant young Italian nobleman with flowing raven hair and fine attire. The piece is unmarked but the work of a talented potter and decorator.
Vase presents well and is in good vintage condition, with minor display wear and patina commensurate with age. One handle has two old repairs to ends of one serpent. Add elegant Italian Renaissance style and grace to any interior with this fine art vase.
