POTD - Italian trees


POTD - Italian trees

Actually, I have no idea if these are Italian trees, but on the bottom of this little piece of decorative pottery it says ITALY 2570.  I've seen Italian trees but not all of them, obviously, so I am not exactly sure.  The little pottery piece is about three inches high and just about as wide.  I have a small collection of these Italian pieces (I think I have six pieces) and this is the only one where the image isn't scratched into the wet clay first, then glazed and painted later.  I used to go to antique shops on a fairly regular basis and that's when I picked up all of these pieces.  It seems like a lifetime ago.

Enjoy!

I remember that collecting phase...I think I might have been with you when you purchased this little ditty...I seem to recall sending you a piece or two, also...once upon a time. How nice to see this little pottery gem again! <3

It's beautiful. I have to little pieces (a boy and a girl) that have ITALY stamped on them. Not sure their story, but they're unique and colorful, so I love them.
