Of course I immediately fell head over heels in love, and set out to find out more about the company. From what I could gather, Rosenthal Netter was an importer of Italian pottery after WWII, along with another well known company, Raymor.
Some of the pottery is from designer Aldo Londi, who designed pieces for a company called Bitossi which was then imported by Rosenthal Netter. At least that is how I am understanding it - it is all a bit confusing. I think this owl could be a Londi/Bitossi piece.
Again it is all a bit confusing, so I am interested to see how the auction goes, and if anyone emails me with more info about this amazing Owl... If you know anything please do comment - I'm totally smitten :).
Let's have a look at some of the other Rosenthal Netter items that are out there right now, shall we? There's LOTS to drool over! ;)
This is just the tip of the iceberg, there is so much more great stuff out there... I'm so glad I stumbled upon my Owl - it just goes to show that in this line of work there is always something you haven't seen out there waiting to be discovered!
