The popular production between 18th and 20th century

To conclude this millenarian excursus about Italian ceramics, some examples of popular Italian productions have been added to represent that rich and variegated group of vessels,far from the industrial production, created to fulfill specific domestic needs for everyday life. Between the end of the 18th and the first half of the 20th century the background of the Italian popular ceramics was very articulated in all the regions, in particular in south Italy the workshops produced a variegated range of artifacts such as flasks, oil lamps, salt-cellars sometimes with egg cups, whistles and many other items, with creative anthropomorphic and zoomorphic shapes.
