Featured in the Fall Winter 1980-1981 advertising campaign, this set of three glasses is decorated with the Flora motif with a metal bottom. 'Gucci Italy' is engraved on the bottom. This set of glasses was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned by the in-house atelier. It has been given the number 48 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The Flora motif, a delicate and whimsical composition of flowers, fruits and insects, was created for Gucci in 1966 by artist and set designer Vittorio Accornero. The print was repurposed in the 1980s for a collection of homeware pieces. Here, it's painted onto a set of three clear glasses elevated by a metal pedestal.
As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than an ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
