My San Marino girls

 San Marino is a tiny independent country  surrounded by  Italy.  It is inrernationally famous for two products – its postage stamps and its ceramics. Pottery was being made there for centuries .  In 1955 the government took notice of this industry growing in its midst and to its credit decided to help promote it  by creating an International Exhibition of Modern Ceramics. From June through October of that year the exhibition took place at the Kursaal Congress Centre and met with great international press coverage Basically they gave the big factories of Italy some good competition

It is these Mid Century Modern ceramics that are so beautiful. They always  feature  the same  lady. I picked these up over the years for pence at car boot sales.
