Aldo Londi vase

Today I found out this vase is by Aldo Londi, the former art director of the famous Bitossi family in Italy.  He is best known for his Rimini Blu colection.  My Dad told me they bought it on their honeymoon in Italy.  My Mom said it was a wedding present.  Hmmmm.  Either way, I have a newfound appreciation for this gorgeous piece.

This orange cat would look great on my shelf!

Aldo Londi (1911-2003)
