FORNASETTI "MALACHITE MUSIC" 9" PLATE
Can a mineral be synonymous for a man?
In the case of malachite, the answer is yes.
If you encounter it in post-war 20th century design it is often by hand of Piero Fornasetti, or inspired by his love of the material.
Arguably Fornasetti's most enduring trompe l'oeil creation, he applied it to a wide variety of products; wallpaper, furniture as well as on the surfaces of countless other pieces.
Not surprisingly, Fornasetti's malachite objects are the most sought-after from his oeuvre.
An essential edition to your Fornasetti collection...or a key piece to start one.
