Retro Italian Ceramics

Bitossi Vases, Bowls and Small Animals


We recently had a tour of the many vintage furniture shops on Regent Street , right now Redfern is quite the place for retro style furniture shopping and vintage finds, concentrated in a few hundred meters there are about 5 great shops.

Our favorite is Graham & Graham Design,a family run business that specialize in beautiful mid 20th century design, furniture, ceramics, lighting and custom handmade lampshades.

A beautiful bright blue glazed ceramic vase was what caught my eye and after talking with the owner we found out it’s in fact a retro piece from Italian brand Bitossi.


Bitossi Ceramiche was born at the beginning of 1900’s and became increasingly popular thank to their collaboration with leading figures such as Aldo Londi, Ettore Sottsas and Guido Fornasetti .

The beautiful blue vases are part of the collection called “Rimini Blu” that also includes animal figurines, bowls and ashtrays.

You can find these retro ceramic pieces in Sydney at Graham & Graham or in some Ebay and Etsy stores online.
