Wall Plate No. 371
This wall plate is No. 371 of Fornasetti’s kaleidoscopic variations of the face of the designer’s muse, opera soprano Lina Cavalieri.
Fornasetti’s decorative plate No. 371 features a strange, beguiling portrait of Cavalieri with only her eyes visible through a pair of opera glasses, held up by one elegant hand. The plate channels the Italian house’s distinctive sense of surreal-tinged humour – a style pioneered by designer Piero Fornasetti, and proudly continued by his son Barnaba. Handcrafted from fine porcelain in Italy, this plate is a must-have for art and design enthusiasts. Hang it above your mantelpiece or in a hallway, for an enigmatic addition to your living space.
“The sources of inspiration for the Fornasetti visual language are numerous. They come from the past, often from classical and neoclassical art, always with respect for the canons of beauty.” – Barnaba Fornasetti
