Italy - 1975-1999 - EPSS silver plated 18/10 steel

The 5070 series table cruet set and 5071 series cheese dish with spoon (not Alessi-branded) are in 18/10 silver plated steel with containers in over 24% lead crystal.
The set, designed by Ettore Sottsass for Alessi, is a small piece of architecture for the table: the perfect mix of functional aesthetic. With this condiment set, he managed to design practical and essential objects to complete what he defined as a "lovely table".
Under the base of both are two non-slip pads and the Officina Alessi EPSS Italy hallmark.
The set, difficult to find precisely because it is silver plated, has been used, it is in good condition and free from chips and dents, the cruet set container has small stains on the base, a small stain on the edge of the cheese dish, some stains inside of the caps, please take a good look at the detailed photos which are an integral part of the description. Thank you.
