VINTAGE
c1960s
ANCORA POTTERY
ITALY
HAND PAINTED
STRAWBERRY PITCHER
FROM THE ESTATE OF
FRANK HARDART
This handpainted Strawberry Pitcher was made by Ancora Pottery Italy circa 1960s. I purchased this piece from the Frank Hardart estate in Forest Hills Gardens , New York (Frank Hardart was the founder of the famous and long-gone Horn & Hardart Automat). In the kitchen was a collection of strawberry pottery of all types and we just fell in love with them and purchased a number of pieces and added them to our own collection. This vintage pitcher is entirely handmade and hand painted, and was originally purchased on a trip to Italy at the Ancora store in Nove, a well known town where the streets are lined with ceramic shops. Ancora is one of the better stores in the town and features intricately made, handpainted ceramic dinnerware, containers, lamps, tiles, and many other types of ceramics.
This piece is a beautifully glazed Majolica pottery pitcher in a strawberry motif with leaves, a leaf spout and vine handle, painted in an organic, naturalistic coloration. On the bottom it is stamped "Hand Painted Made in Italy by Ancora." A portion of the Ancora name is rubbed. The pitcher measures approximately 8 1/4" high and 8" wide spout to handle. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, crazing, or chips, and the paint is intact and vibrant.
A special piece of vintage pottery to display and add beauty to any kitchen or dining area.
