Vintage condiment / cruet set, Guzzini, Italy circa 1960’s

This is a Stunning retro condiment / cruet set with stand, by Guzzini, Italy circa 1960’s.

A Fantastic design, so reminiscent of the era, with its classic orange and white colourway retro plastic styling.

The circular white plastic stand / tray has a deep rim to hold the cruets and bottles, and a chrome / stainless steel carry handle.
The two tall bottles for oil and vinegar marked ‘O’ and ‘V’ have orange plastic cylindrical bodies with mini spouts at the top, and white domed removeable lids for filling.
The salt and pepper cruets, marked ‘S’ and ‘P’, have a stunning curved teardrop shape, with holes at the top for dispensing and plastic stoppers on the bases for easy filling.

Beautiful design by this renowned Italian maker of classic iconic 1960’s homeware pieces. Lovely styling in form and colour, vibrant and reflects the Space Age / Pop Art influences of the era.

Would make a Great addition to any retro, vintage, mid century, space age, pop art, 1960’s, minimal or contemporary kitchen or table setting.

In Excellent Condition, a few miniscule marks, nothing to detract on display, the stoppers on the cruets are both different, but work perfectly.

The bottles still have the original Guzzini labels on the bases!

Total size of stand is 22 x 14 x 14cm / 8.75 x 5.5 x 5.5in.

The bottles measure 18 x 5 x 5cm / 7 x 2 x 2in.

The cruets measure 7.5 x 5 x 5cm / 3 x 2 x 2in.

Set of 6 Retro Orange Plates 1960’s, ‘Fat Lava’ / Vallauris pottery

These are a stunning bright retro set of 6 Orange ceramic plates, made circa 1960’s.

Very Striking with their glossy Orange Majolica style glaze, mottled and flamelike with areas of black and grey, like burning embers. Very reminiscent of the late Sixties Pop Art era, and in the style of European potteries of the era in Vallauris (France), West German ‘Fat Lava’ and Dutch ceramics who all employed similar techniques and designs.

The bases are glazed in a contrasting black, with no markings.

Super stylish and Fantastic to have a set of six, perfect for adding a splash of vintage colour to any table or kitchen.

Would make a great addition to any collection of European pottery, and would complement any retro, vintage, modernist, pop art, kitsch, 60’s, 70’s or contemporary interior.

All in Excellent Condition with no chips, marks or scratches.

Each measure 16 x 16 x 2cm / 6.5 x 6.5 x 0.75in
