ITALY JOUSTER FIGURINE WZ ZACCAGNINI EAMES KNIGHT
Double boxed always!
Perfect medieval knight on horseback in Italian terracotta with elaborate majolica tin-glaze decoration by artisans at the house of Italian master Ugo Zaccagnini, Florence, circa 1935...
marked as shown and in excellent condition -- no lances to be found, but no flaws to the pottery or finish whatsoever just what I have shown in the pictures..
Trained as a sculptor, Zaccagnini (1868-1937) worked at Richard Ginori before opening his own studio with his sons in Florence in 1891, producing magnificent terracottas like this, exhibited at Milan and exported to markets worldwide -- especially to the United States, w his classical pieces were wildly popular in the 1920s and '30s... Please bid with confidence - TLC quality packaging is always free, and we stand behind every item...
