Early in 2007, we drew your attention to the Aldo Londi’s Rimini Rosso Cat, which had been re-issued by Bitossi to celebrate the centenary of his birth. Londi also produced the Rimini Blu line for Bitossi, which has been in production since 1953 and reproductions of the animal series are now on sale at the National Gallery shop.
The collection includes a lion, horse, porcupine, cat and bird, with this rather random assortment of creatures apparently representing the divisions of a traditional Italian city, which each had heraldic symbols. Prices range from £25 up to £100 depending on the size of the piece.
Visit the National Gallery website to see the other pieces.
