BAS-RELIEF WALL PLAQUE, W/CAVEMAN. CAVEWOMAN & BENEVOLENT LION. Italian Modernist ceramic art/bas-relief sculpture. 8 ¾” Height x 8″ Width x ½ Thick. Offered for your careful review and consideration is this killer vintage Marcello Fantoni (Italy) Modernist bas-relief, ceramic figurative plaque from Fantoni’s 1950’s’Caveman’ series of glaze decorated, figurative, 2-dimensional light wall sculptures, featuring an assortment of cavemen, their cavemen wives and cavemen children, often depicted humorously with tamed, seemingly benevolent lions, as sorts of domesticated pets and extensions of the cavemen nuclear family. Fantoni clearly was having fun here (perhaps a little too much fun) with this popular series, not nearly as high-minded and as conceptually lofty as his famous, otherworldly glazed ceramic vessels, which made him internationally famous. Signed and with the original affixed Gump’s San Francisco, California luxury retailer’s branded label still on the back. There’s not a whisper on it. It’s in simply incredible condition for those who crave the best and demand near perfection. This vintage Marcello Fantoni’Caveman’ series decorated figurative ceramic plaque of a caveman, cavewoman and a rather friendly, benevolent lion, delivers. It still has its original hanging hook and wire attached. It’s ready to go. What’s on your walls? It’s probably not an authentic, original, vintage Marcello Fantoni ceramic wall plaque of a caveman family looking back at you. You won’t find it at Wal-Mart, Target, Neiman-Marcus, Saks or Bloomingdales but you can find it here. Signed on the verso’Fantoni, Italy’ in cursive script with original affixed sticker from the West Coast department store Gumps that reads. Made in Italy for Gumps, San Francisco, California. Gump’s was a luxury American home furnishings and home décor retailer, founded in 1861 in San Francisco, California. The company was liquidated in 2018. Very good to Excellent, pristine, near immaculate overall condition. Not a whisper on it. If God pooped ice cream sundaes, this would be it.
