Marcello Fantoni ceramic bowl Raymor Italy 1950





Beautiful and colourful ceramic bowl designed by Marcello Fantoni and manufactured by Raymor in Italy in 1950. This is a very nice and early example of Fantoni’s ceramics. Really nice play of coloured brush strokes in an abstract way. The bowl decorated with brown, blue, red and yellow on a white/light grey surface. The brown runs through the inside, sides and bottom as well. The crackle in the original glazed surface makes this piece even more special. The bowl is signed at the bottom.


Fantoni studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence before beginning to produce ceramics in the late 1930s. During his career he worked with numerous companies and produced a wide variety of objects, from vases and bowls to monumental sculptures. Fantoni was known for his distinctive style that combined modern shapes with traditional production techniques. He was a leader in the Italian ceramics movement of the 1950s and 1960s, which saw a revival of interest in the decorative arts. Fantoni won numerous awards for his work during his lifetime, including the Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale in 1954 and the Grand Prix at the Brussels World Exhibition in 1958.
