Gio Ponti for Richard Ginori San Christoforo, stunning maiolica, 'Il Pifferaio' (The Piper), precursor to the 'stanchi' (tired subjects) series

One of a kind!

Painted and made by hand in the 1930s by Gio Ponti during his collaboration with Italian ceramics company Richard-Ginori San Cristoforo Milano (1923-30) The characteristic 'Il Pifferaio' tile with its reflective, stylised shapes already reflected Gio Ponti's interest in neoclassicism.
