Furniture maker, artist, and designer extraordinaire, Piero Fornasetti is known for his fun, witty, and sometimes downright scandalous illustrations based on everything from hot air balloons to the face of his muse, opera singer Lina Cavalieri.
Using his designs as transfer prints, Fornasetti decorated a near-countless range of furniture and design elements from cushions and tableware to ashtrays and tables.
Perfect for a home where a sense of fun, whimsy, or unexpected playfulness is treasured, Fornasetti ashtrays are a great way to show off your love of unusual decorative pieces.
Typically known only for its functionality, furniture before Fornasetti was often dull and inexpressive. Thanks to Fornasetti’s genius, the creation of everything from Fornasetti plates to designer ashtrays have produced some of the most sought-after additions to contemporary, modern, and minimalist homes and offices.
Embodying his love for pushing the limits of what is socially acceptable, a Fornasetti ashtray is a great way to bring a little old-fashioned edge to any interior. Decorated with everything from portraits to anatomical drawings, Fornasetti’s designer ashtrays are an understated way to fill everyday actions with a little magic and fun.
How Much Is a Fornasetti Ashtray?
As Fornasetti ashtrays are a relatively modern creation, they are an excellent choice for livening up your decor without breaking the bank. At Leclaireur, our Fornasetti designer ashtrays range from $160 to $230.
Their designs mainly feature Lina Cavalieri’s motif, although a select few are covered in a unique newspaper print that invokes a sense of nostalgia and rich Italian heritage.
Finding the Right Fornasetti Designer Ashtray for You
Many of Fornasetti’s famous plate designs are featured on our range of designer ashtrays. If you are a lover of Fornasetti art, his signature Cavalieri motif, or simply like a bold, decorative element around which to encourage conversation, these are the ideal designer ashtrays for you. Choose from a variety of Cavalieri’s portraits, including the iconic broken plate or eyepatch designs that set Fornasetti’s creations apart.
However, if you prefer a more muted, old-fashioned appeal, our Fornasetti Giornali Il Giorno and Locandina Così Fan Tutte ashtrays may be better suited for your overall aesthetic.
Regardless of the type of Fornasetti ashtray you choose to buy, each ceramic piece is designed with the utmost care and attention to detail.
