Piero Fornasetti Rare Dishes Decorated With Sea Anemones, Urchins & Shells,

Conchiglie Pattern,

Circa 1960's-early 1970's.


Diameter: 9 1/2 inches


Fornasetti's whimsical and colourful Conchiglie pattern features a different sea creature filling the center well of each plate, surrounded by assorted sea animals, shells, mollusks and fishes. While many of the creatures are realistically rendered, there are a few fantastic animals as well. One plate has a hairline crack.


Reference: Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, edited by Barnaba Fornasetti, page 608, #140 for a black and white photograph of eight plates with similar elements that were developed as prototypes for this series in 1947.
