Perhaps a modernized nod to ancient pottery, this Alvino Bagni for Raymor vase has an 'antiqued' multi-tonal glaze that appears to be chocolate brown in ambient room light, but brought into the sun it reveals itself to have hints of plum, green, and rust. The handles are a most unusual tubular shape, the likes of which I've never seen before. Although his works were made for the masses, this one seems unique. Made in Italy, Circa 1950s, measures 12" tall.
