Raymor Italian Art Pottery Mid Century Modern Angry Bird
An Italian art pottery bird made for Raymor has extensive hand work and is large, about the size of a cantaloupe. It measures 6" tall 7 1/2" long and 5" wide. Sometimes found with a Raymor label and the TUD code, this example only has a paper label "Made in Italy".
By construction details of this and other TUD examples I suspect they may have been made by Bitossi and are taken from knockoffs of other company's work. The lion in this series is eerily similar to that of one made by Alfaraz Pottery.
