Carlo Scarpa Silver Centerpeice

1,675.00

Designer:  Carlo Scarpa (1906 – 1978)

Item: Centre Piece Table center piece

Manufactured by: Cleto Munari

Country of origin: Italy

Year made: 1977

Materials: Silverplate over brass

Dimensions: 11 ¾” x 3 ½” 

Description:  Here is a hard to find limited production table center piece designed by Carlo Scarpa for Cleto Munari in Italy.  Signed twice; once in his signature “C. Scarpa” on the base that is visable, and a second time under the top rim “C Scarpa per Cleto Munari Silver plate” and “Made in Italy.” This centerpiece was only produced in a limited edition that was made in both sterling silver and silver-plate.  The edition size for the sterling silver was only 99 and we are unsure about the edition size for the silver-plate, but it could not have been many since we have only seen a few ever come to market, and for high prices. This work is listed on the Cleto Munari website.      

Condition: Very good with some light scratching, polishing marks, and spots of over-polishing on the underside of the top.
