Fantastic Fantoni

A name to look for in Italian ceramics is Fantoni. You'll recognize the distinctive signature, writ large, when you find an authentic piece such as this oversized ashtray.  The hallmarks are all here:
A)the heavy, gloppy multi-tonal glaze
B) the scraffito (etched) surface
We don't encourage smoking, but we do support collecting great examples of form over function!
