Ceramic oil cruet with lion-like features, Italy, 19th century. A valuable item in the shape of a crouching lion, with the head reclined upward. The item appears pleasantly iridescent, thanks to its many colours which create many shades and chromatic highlights when hit by the light. The four legs (adorned with a golden thread) structure a delicate and balanced figure, embellished by a dorsal and pectoral mantle decorated with shell-shaped motifs, of yellow and green colour. The back legs are decorated with a flora motif, on the right side there is a black leaf, almost an artist’s signature which makes the work all the more special. Finally, the tail, is shaped to form the handle of the oil cruet itself.
In perfect condition, intact in all its parts, no chipping, no tampering, no restorations nor flaws.
