A porcelain wall plate made in Italy by Fornasetti, and featuring part of the timeless face of 19th century opera singer Lina Cavalieri. This is number 81 from the 'Themes & Variations' series. Piero Fornasetti first used Cavalieri's face in one of his designs in 1952 and since then more than 350 designs have been produced using variations of the face and features of the woman considered at the height of her career to be 'the world's most beautiful woman'. The back bears the Fornasetti mark.
The plate comes in its original box - there is minor wear to the box.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
