Auction 143A 'Italian Design' on 19 February 2019

This year we are starting the auction season with a fantastic and refreshing offer of Italian Design. An absolute rarity on the art market is a secretary designed by Gio Ponti with festive, ornamental paintings by Piero Fornasetti in gold on beige such as festoons and musical instruments (estimate € 70.000- 90.000). An invitation to enjoy life in the full! This slender piece of furniture is not only an eyecatcher but also an investment which is worthwhile. According to the Fornasetti-Archive, only 15 copies were manufactured during the 1950s and 1960s. In addition, Fornasetti lovers may also look forward to the folding screen ‚Strumenti Musicali‘ (estimate € 13.000-17.000) which counts among the outstanding pieces of our well stocked Fornasetti-offer.
