A wonderful bright red pitcher style vase with a  dramatically flared lip in the 'Como' decor from an unknown Italian maker.  This decor is commonly referred to as 'Strawberry' and was once attributed to Fratelli Fanciullacci, but there is no hard proof as yet that this is true.  The decor was also popular with some German Manufacturers such as Dümler & Breiden who produced items with this decor in their 'Studio Series."  The ones produced in Italy are generally of two distinct types - one with a very bright red glaze and gold markings on the base and another with a darker red glaze and incised markings, but there are other variations as well with other base markings and in different colors.  The discovery of an italian pottery catalog has given us the decor name of 'Como', but still no clue about who the maker could be.  They all appear to be hand thrown and finished by hand.
