Fontana Arte Decorative Box in Wood and Glass, 50s

$ 5,000
  • Description
    FontanaArte is an Italian company founded in Milan (as Fontana Arte) in 1932 by Luigi Fontana and Giò Ponti and specializing in glass processing and the production of furnishing accessories. It is known for working with curved crystal and producing lighting fixtures, becoming a prominent name in Italian design over the years. Here we have a little wooden carved box with a beveled crystal lid, useful to store little objects such as jewels. The peculiar detail is that the glass is shaped on one of its edge in order to make it easier to grip and open the box.
    Good condition, fully original, and ready to be shipped.
    We do recommend a wooden crate for safety of the glass during the transport.
