|Offered is an artist signed matte white Rosenthal Porcelain vase designed by Lino Sabattini in the late 1980s/1990s as form 3766. It measures 9 inches high and 9 ½ inches at its widest point and is in excellent condition without damage or restoration. Sabattini recreated this form in silver plate for his “Collezione Sabattini” in 1995 and titled it Paestum. The versatile and prolific, self-taught Italian designer Lino Sabattini is a master creator of cutlery and tableware. It was thanks to Gio Ponti, who raved about Lino Sabattini's designs, that Sabattini became known to a wide following. In 1956 Gio Ponti presented Lino Sabattini's metal objects in "Domus". Ponti also organized an exhibition for Sabattini in Paris the same year. Lino Sabattini became director of design at the prestigious Christofle Orfèvrerie, where he created metalware notable for abstract organic yet invariably elegant and modern forms between 1956 and 1963. During that period, Sabattini also designed metal, glass, and ceramic objects for Rosenthal, Nava, and Zani&Zani. In 1964 Lino Sabattini opened a studio in in Bregnano, south of Como. The limited editions of Lino Sabattini designs produced by Argenteria Sabattini are highly coveted by connoisseurs.|
