SOLID CARVED WOOD FLASK BY PIETRO MANZONI
H: 33cm (12.99in)
W: 18cm (7.09in)
D: 12.5cm (4.92in)
Designed by Italian industrial designer Pietro Manzoni, these hand carved and finished flasks were created for the luxury goods market. Their high quality is evident in both the refined finish and the simple and exacting details. They have companions in matching trays, carafes, and ice buckets, all of which are rare. These pieces date from the 1970/'80s and are some examples are marked 'for Vietri', though this piece isn't.
It's in generally good condition; the glass liner would benefit from a proper clean before use and there is some staining around the top where the cork sits. Other than this there are some light marks and scratches but the piece retains good colour and it's clean, elegant shape.
The flask stands 33cm high, is 18cm wide (inc. handle) and 12.5cm deep
