0.00

Designer: Lino Sabattini (born 1925)

Item: Giselle Bud Vases

Manufactured by: Sabattini Argenteria

Country of origin: Italy

Year made: Ca. 1970s

Materials: Silverplate over brass

Dimensions: 10” x 2 ¼” x 1 ¼” and 8 ½” x 2 ¼” x 1 ¼”

Condition: Good Plus used condition.  No loss of silverplate, but the surface shows scratching due to years of regular use and polishing, perhaps with an abrasive.  The photos make it look worse than it appears in natural light.

Description:  These are very popular and elegant bud vases by Sabattini that came in three sizes.  These are the two smaller sizes.  A famous design by Sabattini, but sometimes attributed to Gio Ponti.  However, we  could not find these on Sabattini’s website that provides photographs and illustrations of the works that were designed by Ponti and executed by Sabattini.  Marked Sabattini Italy on the bottom of each.
