Originally released in the early 1970s, this set of six decorative cups are crafted in silver nickel with animal heads, including a horse, dog, rabbit, fox, deer and wild boar. Each decorative cap has an embossed 'Gucci Italy' logo. This decorative set was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned to the highest standard by in-house artisans. It has been given the number 26 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Playful decorative cups with intricately engraved animal motifs give an unexpected design element where the head sits on the top. Reaching past the utilitarian aspect in a way that only Gucci can, one can imagine the conversations that have taken place over the decorative components of the set for the past 60 years.
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 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 unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
