Gorgeous sculpture by Cacciapuoti, great Italian master ceramist. The work title is “Colpo di Vento” (gust of wind), depicting a young girl in the act of holding her skirt down in the middle of a gust of wind. Other artists, such as Mollica, have treated this subject, Cacciapuoti, however is inimitable. Cacciapuoti’s signature is engraved in the ceramic piece.

The “Cacciapuoti” Artistic Ceramic Factory, was founded in Naples by Cesare Cacciapuoti, a member of a majolica makers family.
His son Giuseppe (1828-1896) inherited the company around 1880. In the same year, some of his works were exhibited in Turin and Milan.
His brother Ettore also worked in the factory and presented some of his ceramic works at the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
In the early 1900s, the company, specialized in bronze-imitation pottery was in the capable hands of Giuseppe’s sons, Cesare (who opened his own factory in 1883 and became associated with the dinnerware manufacturer Schioppa), Ettore and Guglielmo.
Among the contributors working for the company in the early times, a special mention deserves the painter Giovanni Battista Foschi.
Between the late Nineteenth and the early Twentieth century, highly qualified painters and modellers worked for the Cacciapuoti factory, including Attilio Pratella and Filippo Cifariello.
In the early 1900s the factory was handed over to Ettore and Guglielmo, who worked hard to modernize the processing and make production more competitive. They started manufacturing earthenware works with casting technique.
In 1906 Ettore left the factory and moved to Paris, where he started his career as a painter. Guglielmo took over all the factory shares and continued production trading as “Stabilimento Ceramico Artistico Partenopeo.”
In 1907, the sons of Guglielmo, Mario and Guido, moved to Treviso where they collaborated with the “Gregory” ceramic manufactory and met Arturo Martini.
In 1927, Mario and Guido, in partnership with Angelo Bignami, in charge of the commercial and administrative part of the company, left Treviso and founded the Artistic Ceramics Factory “Mario Cacciapuoti & C.” in Milan, in Viale Premuda 34. This company remained active until 1930.
In 1930, when Mario prematurely died, the company management was left to Guido, who led the company to success by raising the level of products quality and quantity, both models and pieces.
Among the ceramists who worked for the factory at that time, it’s worth mentioning: Francesco De Matteis, Giuseppe Granello, Ruffo Giuntini, Silvio Righetto, Giuseppe Renda, Achille D'Orsi and De Martino.
In those years, some animal characters were created for the factory by sculptor and ceramist Sirio Tofanari.
The factory production was extremely accurate from a technical point of view, consisting in traditional and modern ceramics, ornaments, statuettes and figurines in 1700s costumes. They received top awards at major exhibitions, in Italy and abroad.
In the years around WW2, G.Y.Elcod was among the company employees.

I am passionate about Italian ceramics, about the great Italian ceramists of the first half of the 20th century, I collect and sell them, I believe I have a notable culture on ceramists and their productions, as well as an investment, ceramics give luster and soul to the rooms that exhibit them.

    cio che afferma non e' esatto, ho subito comunicato a katawiki, che le venisse restituito quanto lei ha pagato, non e' previsto che la restituzione avvenga con spese a carico di chi riceve indietro l'oggetto al momento del ritiro, chi doveva ritirare il pacco, non era autorizzato a pagare spese, bastava che lei comunicasse cio che aveva intenzione di fare e lo concordasse con me.
