Lino Sabattini Drinks / Cocktail Set / Ice Bucket, c.1970

$1,469.94

About the Item

A rare and highly prized silver plated modernist drinks/cocktail set retaining all six of the original glasses inside, dating to c.1970. I believe this is in the "Whisky" pattern by Sabattini. Designed by the well renowned Italian designer, Lino Sabattini when he launched 'Argenteria Sabattini' in the 1960s, where he created beautiful silver shapes of 'exquisite simplicity'. Fully signed "Sabattini Italy" on the underside. Just back from our silversmith's workshop where it has been professionally cleaned and polished, restoring it to it's former glory. Superb condition measuring 10 1/4" in diameter x 6 5/8" tall. Lino Sabattini was the preeminent figure in modern Italian silver and metalware design. His expansive and diverse body of work is marked by its strength and boldness, whether in dynamic forms that suggest the thrust and power of Italian Futurist art and design or light and curvaceous biomorphic serveware and decorative objects. Sabattini was largely self-taught as a designer. Born in the northern Italian town of Correggio, he learned metalsmithing techniques while working in the studio of a maker of brass tableware. He also served as an apprentice of sorts to the expatriate German ceramist Roland Hettner, who taught Sabattini about fluidity of form and showed him how shapes derive from the behavior of materials. At age 30, Sabattini opened a studio in Milan, and his work quickly came to the attention of Gio Ponti, who decided to publish it in Domus, the Italian design legend's influential design and architecture magazine. Ponti also arranged for Sabattini’s creations to be included in a 1956 exhibition of contemporary Italian design in Paris. The principals of Christofle, the revered French silverware maker, were so impressed that they hired the young designer as the firm’s artistic director, a post he held until 1963. Sabattini, who would also go on to design ceramic wares for Rosenthal, returned home to open Argenteria Sabattini in Bregnano, a company still in business today.
