Hand Painted Ceramic Plate by Giovanni DeSimone
10"dia. x 1"h
"Girl with a Flower" Giovanni DeSimone was an exuberant mid-20th C. Sicilian potter whose creations do homage to local country folk involved in their daily tasks. All Giovanni DeSimone pieces were individually hand painted and, as a result, no two pieces were ever the same. His pottery, which was painted in bright colors and featured decorative and stylized drawings of animals and figures, is extremely collectible and highly sought after.
