Pair of Italian Hand-Painted Ceramic Pots / Albarelli late 1800s

Found in Rome, Pair of Italian Hand-Painted Ceramic Pots / Albarelli late 1800sRome

A beautiful and rare pair of maiolica patterned Italian albarelli, late 1800s early 1900s. 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. These maiolica alberelli  were likely made in the late 1800s but their distinctive patterns pre-date this. They were perhaps made to fit in with maiolica albarelli made earlier, in the 16th century.  In good condition considering age, they have minor chips and markings as seen in photographs. 

Dimensions:  Each Albarello H21cm X W13cm X D13cm
