Imposing Pair of Large Antique Italian Majolica Snake-Handled Vases

About

An Imposing pair of large antique Italian Majolica snake-handled vases, late 19th century. With very fine hand painted classical and biblical scenes and grotesque faces in relief to the sides beneath each detailed snake handle. Similar to work by the Cantagalli Pottery of Florence. In 1878, Ulisse Cantagalli (1839-1901) took over the family's factory in Florence and began to trade as Manifattura Figli di Giuseppe Cantagalli, producing highly decorative Italian ceramics in the Renaissance Majolica style. The Cantagalli factory closed in 1985. Cantagalli marked his works with a cockerel symbol, but this is not visible on these examples. This pair would make an impressive statement in any piece. Similar vases are kept in museums worldwide. Can also be turned into a fabulous pair of table lamps. Very good condition. No repairs, chips, or cracks. Normal wear consistent with age and use. Normal factory bubbles can be seen on the rims of the vases. Measures: 30" high x 15" wide x 9.5" deep.
