Lino Sabattini for Christofle Silver “Cardinale” Vase
A slender bud vase in silver-plated metal by self-taught metalsmith and designer Lino Sabattini produced beginning in 1957 by Christofle, the legacy French homewares company where Sabattini was design director.
The lightweight vase has a sleek, modern shape, rendered brilliantly in the reflective silver surface: a high “waist” with the upper portion flaring slightly and ending in two sharp peaks. Stamped on bottom “Christofle France.”
1.5” diameter x 8.5” height.
Excellent original condition.
