Production Note

Factory of Giuseppe Bartolucci of Pesaro (1757-1762).
Pots with this kind of decoration were produced in Pesaro and Urbania (=Casteldurante) by Giuseppe Bartolucci and by Casali e Callegari as well. When there is no mark is difficult to attribute the object to one rather than to the other. See Fatti di ceramica nelle Marche, ed. G. C. Bojani, Milano. 1997, p. 97. O.R. 17. 3. 2000
