Originally produced in the 1970s, this set of four porcelain cups and saucers have the green and red ribbon motif and Horsebit with Interlocking G. Under each cup and saucer in embossed in black and green is 'Richard Ginori Italy for Gucci.' This cup and saucer set 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 46 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
A set of four porcelain cups with the Horsebit combined with the Interlocking G and green and red Web, the saucers are decorated with the green and red Web and both have hand-painted gold detailing. This set was created in collaboration with Richard Ginori and brought together two historic Italian brands to create a true heirloom.
Richard Ginori Ceramic Company began in the late 1890s, when the original 1735 porcelain Manifattura expanded with new technology. The historic tradition of the Florentine maison continues, and is used for Gucci Décor products to this day, as an expression of excellence in Italy combining craftsmanship, creativity and attention to detail.
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.
