Gio Ponti Ceramic and Pure Gold Tea Set for Ginori
Splendid tea set designed by Gio Ponti for Richard Ginori in the 30's. The set by Gio Ponti includes a large teapot, a sugar bowl and a cream jug.
The Gio Ponti set is made entirely of very fine white ceramic, with edges embellished with pure gold, and a thin red stripe enriches the whole.
The teapot is the largest and has a bulkier body, while then has a very fine spout and handle. The lid is also embellished with pure gold, and has a small gold band useful for filling the teapot.
The milk jug is smaller and its opening is larger without the lid. It has a sturdier sleeve to allow you to hold it steady even with a heavier weight.
The sugar bowl is the smallest, it has two beautifully crafted pure gold sleeves, it too has a lid to allow for sugar storage.
Under the base of the tea set by Gio Ponti, the signature of the Richard Ginori manufactory is evident.
The tea set is ideal for entertaining guests and pampering them with elegance and style.
