TIME OF YOURLIFE
A Fornasetti calendar plate is as much a slice of history as it is a piece of art. What other platter can boast of being a collector’s item for the past half century. Piero Fornasetti’s son Barnaba is now at the helm of the heirloom company and busy reviving motifs from the Italian brand’s exhaustive design archives. The 2012 calendar plate sports a black and white palette and a cherub face. Portraits are a speciality of the atelier and each piece is handcrafted. The porcelain creation costs € 240 (` 16,309).
