About

Piero Fornasetti Fleming Joffe Porcelain Recipe Plates, Fleming Joffe, 1960s. These rare set of nine Piero Fornasetti porcelain plates is from a series of fourteen made for the Fleming Joffe company in New York City with surrealistic recipes. These were given as New Year gifts, two at a time, to the company's best clients. About seven hundred of each were made. None were ever sold commercially in stores. The examples included here: Dragon Lizard-Au-Feu, Les Ioles-A Sausage Made From A Sweet Kid's Stomach, Cobra A L'Indienne, Beautiful Soup, Snake A La Cleopatra, Calcutta Minestone, Iguana And Chicken Breasts, Tortoise Risotto, and Corfam A La Dupont. Diameter: 10 1/4 inches The Fleming Joffe company was a small leather goods company in New York. Fornasetti was not the only famous artist this company worked with. Andy Warhol produced ads and copy for them as well as decorating their show booths and showroom. They also commissioned Ogden Nash to pair his bouncy text with Warhol's drawings. Reference: Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, edited by Barnaba Fornasetti, page 614, #163 for a color illustration of one of a set of twelve promotional plates made for the Fleming & Joffe company in the early 1970s. Fornasetti writes, Each of the twelve subjects in this series presents a decidedly improbable recipe. There were actually fourteen different designs made to be given away over seven years at New Year to clients of the company.
