Admiral Vase, Flora Small$130
Many decades ago, the late Aldo Cremona, a master painter who worked at Villa Bologna Pottery for 65 years, decided that he’d had enough of painting only men and decided to turn some of our Admiral vases – a nod to Malta’s seafaring military history – into women. Everyone liked them so much, we kept them. Now you can choose between handsome sailors in striped tops, or winsome women bedecked in jewellery. Both look beautiful with a bunch of fresh flowers.
Handmade and hand painted in Malta. Made from Earthenware clay.
All our products are handmade and handpainted one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a minor variances in size, shape or colour, from one item to the next. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade and hand painted ceramics, but this what makes them so unique.
