FORNASETTI "SOLE DI CAPRI" VASE
"Sole di Capri" is one of Fornasetti's most cherished and enduring patterns.
It has been applied to an array of consumer products including wallpaper, fabric and ceramics.
The combination of the personified sunshine and the stylized architecture (both Fornasetti archetypes) create a distinctive design.
The color combination of marigold yellow and royal blue is also quite unique in context of Fornasetti's work.
During the 1980's Rosenthal helped revive Fornasetti's reputation by applying some of his most enduring illustrations on their products. This lovely vase is a paradigm of this period.
A great addition to your Fornasetti collection or a fantastic gift for the uninitiated.
