FORNASETTI Milano Italy Paper Basket Swirl Motif VINTGE

Up For Auction is a Fantastic Original and Authentic

FORNASETTI MILANO - Lithographed Metal Paper Basket or Trash Can Vintage Signed w/ Brass Edge:

This super chic and equisite vintage Italian Trash Can / Waste Paper Basket by Piero Fornasetti is a highly rare and collectable piece of Fornasetti. Decorated all-over in a Black and White swirl design, very similar to the patterning of FLORENTINE marble or marbled paper, only slightly looser with a more fluid design. Also the swirl design is quite like what ink does when introduced to water. A very pretty piece of Fornasetti!

SIGNED Fornasetti Milano on the base.

Measurements are in inches as follows:

11 inches Height 10.5 inches in diameter or circumference

Condition: Is quite nice, t is some corrosion to base of the inside of trash can near the edges (pictured below) as well as to the edges of the underside of the can. None of the rusting/corrosion affects the integrity of the piece, i.e. t are no holes or rusted out spots. T is also some wear to the brass or metal edge at top, w t are a few scuffs, and general wear all around the edge w the top layer of bronze is worn away in spots. Sides of the can look like they are enamel on top of metal with a litographed design, and thus the enamel has chipped off in several small spots near the base,

Overall a very attractive Vintage Paper Basket that would look stunning in any Powder Room or Office. A must have for the Fornasetti Collector!
