Turquoise Maiolica Italian Albarello late 1800s

Found in Rome, Turquoise Maiolica Italian Albarello late 1800sRome

This beautiful turquoise maiolica patterned Italian albarello (late 1800s early 1900s) was found in Palazzo Torlogna in Rome.  Alberelli were ancient storage containers often used in old pharmacies and shops. Their unique shape was designed to fit with dozens of others on a shelf. This maiolica alberello was likely made in the late 1800s but its distinctive pattern pre-dates this. It was perhaps made to fit in with maiolica albarelli made earlier, in the 16th century.  In good condition considering age, it has some minor chips and markings as seen in photographs. (In addition, we have one other albarello in blue and white, the pieces look beautiful together).
