Guzzini Picnic Ball

R200.00

Whoever used to own this 1970s Guzzini picnic set didn’t do the best job of looking after it, although strangely the contents of this classic picnic ball are in pretty decent nick. There are some scratches to the tray and one or two items are missing (four glass instead of six, and no S&P shaker), but for the large part the bowls and plates are in surprisingly good condition! Not so for the two large salad bowls that make up the carrier for the picnic set (such a clever design!), which have loads of deep scratches and quite a lot of discolouration. Someone’s also taken a knife to the clips that fasten the set closed, presumably to make it easier to open, but at the same time adding to the damage. So while this is a great Italian name in design, and the picnic ball a fairly sought after item (selling for as much as R900!), the condition of the case means that you’re buying it more as a practical piece than an investment, which is just fine – with so many bowls and plates, this really is a functional picnic set that’s sure to serve you well with summer on its way!

Dimensions: Approx. 24cm in diameter
