Antique Majolica Cachepot Italian Trinacria Vase Circa 17th Centruy


Item Description
       This 17th Century Italian Bulb-Shaped Majolica Cachepot is richly decorated with floral and foliate motifs all over on a blue background. The piece features an oval portrait of Trinacria and covered in a white tin glaze. You can see this detail on the inside against the terra cotta clay used to form the pieces.  Majolica is soft-paste earthenware that has been fired to the biscuit stage, then coated with an opaque lead or tin (or both) glaze. The piece is then allowed to dry. After this preliminary glaze dries, the decoration is painted on with bright, colorful metal-oxide glazes. The piece is fired again, resulting in the brilliant and glossy finish for which majolica is most well-known.

The word Trinacria means triangle and refers to the shape of the island of Sicily (“Sicilia” in Italian), the largest island in the Mediterranean. Sicily was known by the Romans as Trinacrium, meaning “star with three points”. The Trinacria symbol is the head of Medusa (a gorgon with a head of snakes), surrounded by three bent running legs, and three stalks of wheat. Due to the island's distinct triangular shape, the symbol has also been adopted by the Sicilian government and is located on the center of Sicily's flag. The Trinacria's shape is often referred to as a triskelion; this shape can be found in many places among the general Mediterranean Basin region and in many European countries like France, Sicily, Crete, Greece, the North African coast, and the Isle of Man.

The vase is approximately 8" height. The art piece comes with a free certification of authenticity and $50,000.00 insurance value.
