Handpainted Vintage Italian Creamer - Italy TC 702

Details

Up for sale is one vintage, hand painted and numbered creamer from Italy. Bottom hand painted with Italy TC 702.

A lovely piece to place on display. Delightful for serving cream and/or syrup...or used as a small flower vase!

Stands at approximately 3 inches from base to highest point and overall 4-1/2 inches wide.

A few chips on base and one on the handle (see photo) are noted. Price reflects imperfections. Inside is very clean.

Since I am unable to properly date this item, I will add that this piece was found in an attic box with other vintage items dating from 1920's to 1960's. If exact dating is important to you, please research independently!

Hand Made Italian Ceramics: how to spot a fake

1 – Turn the Italian ceramic piece you’re interested in upside down and make sure there is an unglazed area.

Italian ceramic bottom - visible unglazed area. This area, usually a circle, shows the natural brownish orange color of the terracotta (bisque). The bisque is sometimes made of white grayish clay, often used for small pieces, but it’s still clearly visible.

Now you’ll be wondering why this detail is so important.
Let me remind you how the humble terracotta changes into a priceless Italian ceramic. Before the actual hand painting the artisan dips the terracotta deeply into a sieve containing fast drying liquid glaze. This fine powder will prevent the colours
from spreading and blurring into each other during the painting and will bond with the subsequent coloured glazes during the final firing.

The glaze however gets quite sticky during the firing. That is why the clever artist makes sure that his or her fine Italian ceramic pieces are not in touch during the firing and carefully removes the glaze from their base.
The damage would be otherwise irreversible.

2 – Touch the unglazed area. It must be rough.
If it is white and smooth then its not an original Italian ceramic, made with traditional materials and techniques.
Sometimes it is still possible to detect the marks of the long pincer the artisans use to glaze their pottery: it’s two tiny dots usually positioned near the rim of the pieces.

3 – Brush strokes must be visible.
