Lot Essay

Founded by Ulisse Cantagalli and Giuseppe Cantagalli in florence, the Cantagalli 'Iznik-style' ceramics can be identified by their signature cockerel marker on the base of the vessels. This unique signature and the non Iznik typical size and form of many Cantagalli vessels reveals that the Italian producers did not seek simply to create Iznik reproductions (Walter B. Denny, Iznik : the Artistry of the Ottoman Ceramics, London, 2004, p.222).
