Burlesque - Large Scented Candle
Availability: In stock
Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, is composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable. Fornasetti conveys a sense of the poetic and magical through its depiction of a dream world filled with whimsical humour. The ‘Fornasetti Profumi per la Casa’ collection brings this unique world to life through a selection of hand crafted and scented decorative objects.
The two images used front and back in ‘Burlesque’ are ‘Tema e Variazioni’. n°78 (face with net) and n°22 (mask) in perfect burlesque style giving the candles a touch of transgression and irony in true Fornasetti style. Burlesque was originally designed for fashion store L’Eclaireur in Paris and has proved so successful that it has been brought into the main collection.
