Charming ceramic wall pocket in the shape of a Italian wickered wine bottle.

Popularized in the early years of the 20th century between the world wars, figural wall pockets took form in many shapes and sizes.  Manufactured in the United States and imported from Europe during these years, wall pockets, or wall vases, held cut flowers or ivy stems for rooting. After the Second World War, imports from Japan became popular and remained popular throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Glazed with classic mid-century colors, this wall pocket measures approximately 8"tall x 3 3/4" wide x 2 1/4" from front to back. There is a small fine crack in the glaze as shown in close-up photo.

Think 1950s Italian restaurant, complete with red and white checkered tablecloth, a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs, and a wickered bottle of house wine.  Perfetto!
