Piero Fornasetti 1970’s Gold Tone Enamel “Money Love” Earrings
Very Rare Fornasetti gold tone enamel “Money Love” earrings in very good condition. Piero Fornasetti created more than 11,000 items, many featuring the face of a woman, operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, as a motif. Fornasetti found her face in a 19th-century magazine. “What inspired me to create more than 500 variations on the face of a woman?” asks Italian designer, Piero Fornasetti of himself. “I don’t know,” he admits, “I began to make them and I never stopped.” The “Tema e Variazioni” (theme and variation) plate series based on Cavalieri's face numbered more than 350. Other common features in his work include heavy use of black and white, the sun and time. His style is reminiscent of Greek and Roman architecture, by which he was heavily influenced. Fornasetti jewelry is very hard to find and are sought by collectors worldwide simply because they remained unsigned or in the original boxes. Approximate Measurements: Diameter 1” Comes in original box. Made in Italy
