Home Tableware & Barware | Vintage Cartomanzia Italian Fornasetti Inspired Porcelain Coasters With Box - Set of 8 - Italy Mid Century Modern RD74554

Offering a rare set of vintage Fornasetti style porcelain coasters, made in Italy, circa 1950s.These coasters are a complete set of 8 including the original box and soft quilted protective liners.Each coaster, including the box is signed on the bottom: CARTOMANZIA, Shetland Import, Made in Italy. These may have been made by Piero Fornasetti for Shetland Imports, but I cannot guarantee that....similar quality.

The Italian word "Cartomanzia" translates to Fortune Telling in English.These coasters not only represent Tarot Card divination but also traditional playing cards.....truly unique coasters!

EXCELLENT CONDITION......all of the plates are in great shape.....it appears that the king of diamonds has had a small restored chip....mentioned only for thoroughness and is barely noticeable. The red box has wear as seen in the photos.

A beautiful set of vintage Italian coasters that are very rare and hard to find.Perfect for the Piero Fornasetti collector.An unusual accessory item that will certainly strike up a conversation.A great addition to a Mid Century Modern bar, coffee table or end table.

SIZE:
Coasters measure: 4" diameter
Red box measures: 4.5" diameter x 3" high

THESE WILL BE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED TO INSURE SAFE ARRIVAL
