Under The Sea

Cubist sgraffito "School of Fish" lamps, Italy, 1950s. Attributable to Bitossi. Traditional natural terracotta "painted" in an era-defining color palette with pastel glazes. I love the very deliberate guide-lines, and the multitude of fish decorated around the entire surface.  
38.5" (to top of the harp)
