A beautiful figurine depicting a peasant produced by the IGNI factory in Turin founded by Lionello Franchini in 1936, a ceramist from Lenci in Turin and considered an imitator. IGNI produced various types of ceramics designed by artists such as Camillo Ghigo, Ines Grande and Otto Maraini. The factory remained open for about 20 years.
A similar statuette of a peasant (varying only in the decoration of his shirt and scarf) was displayed in the exhibition “LENCI - LO STILE ITALIANO NELLA CERAMICA. GLI ARTISTI E GLI EPIGONI” held from 25 May to 25 October 2015 (page 102 of the exhibition catalogue, see attached photos).
Under the statuette is represented the classic IGNI brand with red flame in a black square.
