Bitossi Salad Bowl Leaves
These porcelain plates are decorated with superb vintage illustrations inspired by the old "citrus papers". These small square paper squares decorated with a central pattern were used to pack the oranges in the last century. Being part of the popular cultural heritage of the 20th century, citrus papers have become a rare commodity that is only found on the stalls of luxury grocery stores and among collectors!
Deliciously retro imagery is completely updated by flashy colors, modern patterns and offbeat details. Simple and showy, the patterns respond to a popular and naive inspiration, made of poetry and an ingenuous symbolism, features that are reminiscent of children's drawings. Retro pop imaging, tinged with humor, poetry and mystery ... washable in the dishwasher but does not go to the microwave.
