Designer: Ettore Sottsass (1917 – 2007)

Item: Sottsass Swid Powell Desert Serving Set

Description: A scarcely found dessert set by this highly important Italian designer and founding member of the famed Memphis design group.  Sottsass’ work for Swid Powell was the first time he designed for an American company.  A nice heavy and solid feel in your hand.  We have only seen a few of these sets in fifteen years of searching, and only two others in this fine condition.  Bearing Sottsass’ signature, Reed & Barton, Swid Powell and Japan.  Due to their scarcity we believe that not too many of these sets were ever produced.  Examples can be found in the collections of the Indianapolis Museum or Art and the Yale University Art Gallery.
