This Rainbow Flower Vase, model 1169, was designed and produced by Raul da Bernarda, a ceramic producer from Alcobaça, Portugal, during the 1950's. This design is characteristic from this producer. The ceramic vase is painted with an airbrush in order to accentuate the modeling of surfaces through shading. With saturated colors and a gold fillet, the majority of these pieces, commonly called "Arco-iris" (Rainbow), are from an Italian inspiration, both in form and decoration. It is in original and good condition, with no cracks.
