Antique Blue and White Savona Urn-19th Century Some History: Savona Italy is of very high importance in the field of ceramics and majolica production.Savona pottery is famous above all for its characteristic blue and white colors, known as "Antique Savona". In the 17th century Albisola (small town in Savona province) could boast some of the best majolica production in Europe, with the most widely made decorative pottery being the calligraphic-naturalistic Antique Savona, or blue and white, style. The 17th century is perhaps the period of its greatest splendour. Thanks to the work of the painter Giovanni Antonio Guidobono the famous "Antique Savona" decoration gained popularity, putting Albisola and Savona at the forefront of Italian production, and the famous turquoise colouring was in demand throughout Italy and Europe. . Towards the end of the 19th century it was Nicolo' Poggi who contributed to the rebirth of majolica, first in Savona and then in Albisola. His work encouraged other artists to revert to tradition. The urn you see above is from this time period in the 1800's. The Urn: This Antique Savona urn, in the calligraphic-naturalistic style, has scenes on both sides. One side portrays a battle scene with a coat of arms painted on the neck of the urn, while the other side portrays two men approaching a castle in a landscape style setting of large trees and mountains in the distance. The handles are tied triple stalks of leaves extending from a mascarone. The lid and pedestal have images of battle weaponry , costumes and drums. The bottom bears makers marks. Condition: Minor chips to rim and underside of lid. H=28 1/4, Max Width=17 1/2
