Offered for your collecting enjoyment is this lovely vintage italian majolica monkey container.
I say Italian which is a bit of misconception as this was made in the Republic of San Marino which is an independant country the size of a post stamp located inside Italy. I've been there, there is a castle and a small church on a mountain, that's about it.
This fun vintage bottle can be used as a candle holder. It was made by the Societa Anonima Marina (SAM) between 1955-1989. From the crazing it looks to be on the older side of those dates.
The potters of San Marino made unusual bottles for a cherry based liqueur that was made by the Luxardo company, I believe this to be one of those.
This funny monkey is sitting on a large stack of bananas and has one peeled ready to eat. You can see how happy he is about this with the big smile on his face!
He is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs!!
He measures 13.25 inches tall and is 7 inches wide, so he will make a nice statement piece anywhere in your home.
Add this wonderful vintage San Marino majolica monkey to your collection today or give as a fabulous gift!!
