Lenci Manufacturing started with the production of dolls and toys, in 1927 the company decided to expand its production to a line of figurines and objects in enameled ceramic. In 1928, this led to a very rich catalogue of statuettes and objects that immediately became the fashion for Italian middle and upper classes and bourgeoisie. In order to attain this goal, the manufacturing company availed itself of the creative collaboration of important Turin-born artists such as Sandro Vacchetti, Gigi Chessa, Mario Sturani, Abele Jacopi, Ines and Giovanni Grande, Felice Tosalli and even the owner of the company herself, Helen König Scavini during the full-blown 1930s. The manufacture closed and stopped its production in 1964. Bibliography: A. Panzetta, Le ceramiche Lenci.
