Art Dec Tea Cup and Saucer by MGA Mazzotti Giuseppe Albissola
Beautiful antique Italian majolica tea cup and saucer produced by Mazzotti Giuseppe Albissola in the 1925's. Magnificent brown Renaissance decor introduced into Albisola production by Manlio Trucco beginning in 1925, it translated the canons of Art Deco into ceramics. It marks the return of "protagonist" decoration in the 20th century. It is made of terracotta decorated underglaze with stylized floral and plant motifs. The colors are vivid, being yellow with brownish-black and touches of red.
