Vintage Flora ceramic box, 1980s

Originally released in the 1980s, this white ceramic box is decorated with the Flora motif, created by the artist and set designer Vittorio Accornero de Testa. The crest is embossed in gold. This ceramic box 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 06 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

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 ceramic décor pieces. Here, a portion of that design is displayed on the front lid of this ceramic keepsake box.

A lift of the lid leads to precious keepsakes, small trinkets and personal mementos that are enclosed within the confines of the bottom dish.

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.
