Star Item
  • Description

    London.

    Pan down from a plant reveals the plant pot to be a metal leg and foot in a sandal - bizarre. The Italian artist Piero Fornasetti is seen standing beside an unusual cupboard, he opens the doors. It is very weird, I presume it is a kind of writing bureau. C/U of small piano keyboard, a slide out drawer reveals it to be a cigarette holder - crazy!

    M/S of woman sitting beside some mad furniture. The chest of drawers which has a leopard painted on it is truly fabulous - I want it! A woman puts her newspaper on top of the chest of drawers weighing it down with a paperweight which looks like a newspaper - nutty! Woman opens drawer of the chest of drawers.

    A set of place mats have a design which forms a picture of a bunch of grapes when placed on the table together. Last item featured is a great ashtray which looks like a telegram. Crazy Italians!
