Fornasetti demilune plate made in a limited edition to celebrate FIAT during the 1960s.
Made of silk-screen decorated ceramic, it measures 21 x 14 cm and has the shape of an asymmetrical crescent.
Six plates were designed by Piero Fornasetti for this limited series, celebrating the city of Turin (the Mole Antonelliana is represented) and the main models of the car manufacturer.
The plate is marked on the bottom and also numbered by hand. It is very rare. For references see: B. Fornasetti, a cura di, M. Casadio, Fornasetti l'artista alchimista, La bottega fantastica, Electa 2011, page 600
