This elegant piece of Richard Ginori Italian porcelain has been made in the form of a lobed box. The box has been decorated in Ginori's popular Rapallo pattern, introduced in 1982 and retired in 2006. Rapallo features a twisted pink ribbon intertwined with a foliate garland studded with floral groupings consisting of yellow roses and small purple blossoms accented with green leaves. The ribbon and garland decoration is bordered by gilded bands. The domed lid is topped by a hand-formed rosebud-shaped finial. The lid lifts off to reveal a purple flower flanked by groupings of small rose berries located inside the base.

The lidded box is in very good vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and the gilded decoration is bright and shiny. It should be noted that the top edge of one of the petals located on the rose finial has a production related rough spot which is under the glaze and noted for accuracy. The box stands 4.75" tall as measured to the top of the finial and measures 5" by 4.25" at the widest points of the rim. The glazed foot bears the green Ginori backstamp which reads "RICHARD GINORI" along with the words "MADE IN ITALY". The underside also carries the words "Richard Ginori" surmounted by a red five-pronged crown mark along with the hand painted designation "D. L. 13" executed in brick red paint. Per the estate, this piece dates to the 1980's. The box weighs in at 13oz.

This Italian porcelain box displays beautifully and can be used for nuts or candy, or could also be used to hold special treasures. A charming and useful vintage find!

A note on the maker: Richard Ginori was founded by Marquis Carlo Ginori outside of Florence, Italy in 1735, and the company went on to produce fine porcelain for European nobles including the Medici family and Marie-Louise of Austria, Napoleon's second wife. The company was merged in 1896 with Giulio Richard's Milanese porcelain factory, giving rise to the name Richard-Ginori. Long recognized as one of the world's premier fine porcelain manufacturers, Ginori was sold to luxury goods company Gucci in 2013 as the intended centerpiece of the tabletop portion of their home collection.
