crazy about...

This penguin and cat are both designed by Aldo Londi for Bitossi in Italy circa 1950 in the famous Rimini Blu color combination of blue and turquoise glazes . This two are the beginning of my collection. 
They both like fish. They both reside on my desk... looking beautiful and making me happy:)
I had to take them outside for a tiny photo-shoot - since it's too dark in my house ... and this dreamy mediterranean blue deserved better.

these are so cool! I have a wild boar/pig that i think is Londi.
You can see it on the top shelf in this pic:

These are both such a pleasing shade of blue... And seem to be enjoying the grass! They probably don't get out much. ;)
