The display of this flattering handcrafted vase will bring a hint of Sicilian folklore into any refined indoor or outdoor context. Crafted of fine ceramic glazed in matte white, its anthropomorphic silhouette was inspired by a Sicilian street vendor of figs ("la ficazzana" in Sicilian dialect), its design featuring meticolously shaped and painted purple figs arranged in a crown right around the rim and juxtaposed to another fig adorning the green lips.
