'Pavone' Mirror by Artist Sirio Alessandri, 73" Tall, Published Casa Vogue, 1976

About

Beautiful and super rare 'Pavone' (peacock) mirror designed by Italian artist, Sirio Alessandri ,for Palluco, circa 1975. The 'Pavone' mirror was published in the September 1976 issue of Casa Vogue, please see image 2. This impressive scale mirror stands at a full 73" tall (185.5cm) This is one of the first products ever produced by 'Pallucco' who at this point in their early history were a small boutique gallery based in Via Graachi, Rome producing handcrafted avant garde designs by local artists in very small editions hence why these early designs are as rare as hen's teeth today, this design is so rare that I have been unable to find a single auction record or find another record of an example for sale anywhere. The poetic peacock form is built up from handcrafted layers of plywood, built up layer by layer, gradually revealing the three dimensional form while the main body of the peacock fan is crafted from 16 pieces of mirror framed by 32 plywood roundels representing the peacock eye decoration of the tail feather fan., the central 8 of these roundels protrude significantly to act as occasional coat hooks. There are two hooks on the rear of the mirror to retain it to the wall, this also allows for the mirror to be suspended above floor level should you wish. A very rare opportunity.
