Vintage Italian Piero Fornasetti Table Original Label Italy circa 1960

This original vintage Italian Piero Fornasetti table is from Italy circa 1960 and bears the distinctive label on the underside of the top. Fornasetti, one of Italy's most influential mid century designers,  always took advantage of the latest technology in his designs and this table is no exception. The circular top features a painted transfer ware neoclassical design with robed male and female figures set in a frieze similar to originals from Roman ruins. The marbleized background continues this reference to the Italian Classical past. The table base is actually ebonized acrylic or Lucite with a flared base to the column encircled by a band of brass. The muted gleam of the brass next to the floor plays against the subtle reflection of the black column before reaching the top. The combination of the modern form of the columnar base with the neoclassical design of the top is a hallmark of Fornasetti's design sensibility.
