This attenuated bottle-form vase is stoneware, less commonly seen in Italy where earthenware was generally favored for its accomodation of brightly-colored and carefully controlled glaze effects. The striated relief decoration creates furrows for the glaze to run down, all of it contributing to the exaggerated verticality of the piece. This quality identifies it as a likely product of the 1960s. "Italy" incised to the base, otherwise unsigned.
