It has been given the number 189 | 22 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.
This ceramic piece was created in collaboration with Richard Ginori. 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 combing craftsmanship, creativity and attention to detail.
