Gio Ponti design âe¢ Krupp Italy
This is a NO RESERVE auction!
Gorgeous and simple MILANO flatware in gloss stainless. Designed by Gio Ponti in 1936 and made by Krupp of Italy (sometimes know as Fraser-Krupp because Fraser's was the U.S. distributors of this Italian company's products).
This auction is for 7 salad forks 6-3/4" long (17cm). Each fork is stamped ARTHUR KRUPP MILANO ITALY on the bottom of the handle. These pieces probably date from the 1950s.
I will include a quality photocopy of the Milano pattern sheet from a 1950s Fraser's catalog for the winning bidder (please please don't email asking me for copies!). I'll be listing several lots of this pattern in the next few days, so please check my other auctions. I combine auctions for shipping.
In excellent, gently-used condition with no dents, dings, or deep scratches. The high nickel content of this stainless creates a finish that looks like chrome. Truly beautiful stuff.
