This stylised duo of Italian 'Alla Moda' [Tr. 'Fashionable'] ceramic is of mid-century Modernist design.
The gently exaggerated curves create beautifully sleek arches giving the dishes the form of lightly curled leaves. Accentuating the form is a textured Milk white glaze that creates the canvas for the handpainted vibrant Poppy and flora design with a gold-edged trim framing the pieces.
These charming and elegant works are suitable for standalone display or for functional use as vide poches.
Excellent. No chips, cracks, or repairs. The most notable wear are to the handpainted gold trim and mild movement marks on the underside of the base that is commensurable with the age of the pieces. Please refer to photographs as they form part of the condition report. The base bears the handpainted model numbers '1459/42', '4759/49' and the origin of 'Italy'.
