Description:  Here is an early and rare Sabattini design done while he served as the director of designs for Christofle between 1956 and 1963.  Over the years Sabattini has done several salad server designs, some of which we have on offer here, but these are, in our humble opinion the best. They have all the appropriate Christofle hallmarks as seen in the photos.  In 1956 Gio Ponti presented Lino Sabattini's metal objects in the annual design publication Domus and organized an exhibition for Sabattini in Paris.  Sabattini then became director of design at the Christofle where he created metalware household objects in abstracted and organic forms such as this.
