The Perfect Gift for your New Year’s Eve Host/Hostess

The Fornasetti 2019 Limited Edition Wall Plate is the ultimate gift for a New Year’s Eve Host/Hostess Gift! The image of the fifty-second edition of the now well-known Piatto Calendario portrays a cloudy sky from which a dense mass of keys rains down. For this 2019 limited edition, Fornasetti has chosen a symbolic landscape, expressing a desire for freedom and openness. May it rain keys this New Year, in order to open new doors and broaden our horizons. Barnaba Fornasetti has been designing this series of decorations for 30 years, creating a different plate each year as Christmas approaches. The roots of this tradition date back to the Forties, when his father Piero Fornasetti and Gio Ponti dreamed up the Annuari, each a collection of twelve monthly tables bound into a calendar booklet, sent to friends and devoted customers as a Christmas gift. Years later, in 1968, Piero revisited the idea and began production of a new series of plates, also intended for friends and customers. Thus the Piatto Calendario was born, quickly becoming a cult item for collectors. Caption for the image: Fornasetti Piatto Calendario 2019, porcelain with gold and platinum, diameter 24 cm. Limited edition of 700 pieces.
