Very Flavia-ful

One of the most recognizable names in modern Italian pottery is that of the Bitossi family, now under the moniker "Bitossi by Flavia". The classic Rimini Blu is the most commonly found...that is not to say it is mass produced in any fashion. Their artisans hand craft in the tradition of the original designs created by Aldo Londi. The Bitossi company started in 1921 and has since employed such Italian design royalty as Ettore Sottsass and Fornasetti. Other color variations shown here are rare and quite collectible.
