A genuine signed early 1980s Leo Bonassera gloved hand vase...
Leo Bonassera made imaginative and out-there fun pottery. An Italian, he worked in the UK from the early 1960s. He started his own studio in Kensington in 1961, and in the late 1970s he moved to Rye, Sussex, and rented space from David Sharp at The Mint. These designs date from the late 1970s to early 1980s.
His designs were later copied by Silver Crane ceramics. You can tell the Silver Crane versions as they have a larger hole and a gold button.
This white moulded ceramic of a formal white gloved hand is signed to the base with 'Bonassera Pottery, Rye, England'. It's just larger than real life and has nice detailing and subtle variations in the white glaze, highlights and lowlights.
19.5cm tall x 13.5cm wide x 11cm deep. The hole to hold a single statement stem is roughly 2cm across.
Excellent condition with no chips. Clean and fully functional. One slight line to the upper finger within the white glaze (smooth, not a crack).
