Italian ceramic pin dish, backed in leather, with bold decoration of a woman in a large yellow hat, signed Coccio. The design is typical of the output of the potteries in and around Florence during the 1950s/60s. The sgraffito and highly coloured and glazed motifs resemble the work of Marcello Fantoni and Desimone.

The ceramic is in excellent condition but the leather is quite aged with two worn areas and some nicks on the edge where the leather meets the ceramic.
