FORNASETTI "PIPES" 16" MATCHES BOX
This the first time Caviar20 has offered one of the super chic and unmistakably Fornasetti matches boxes.
Fornasetti was fascinated by the rituals of daily life.
Throughout his body of work he depicts the simple pleasures of eating, drinking, making music and smoking.
During Fornasetti's heyday smoking was a ubiquitous past-time and his studio produced an array of stylish accessories - from ashtrays, to ceramic lighters and vessels for cigarettes.
While a box of this size and scale is useful for fireplace matches, it really doesn't require any functional responsibilities.
It has tremendous decorative power on a coffee table, console or fireplace mantle.
