A Complete Set of Sixteen Piero Fornasetti Adam and Eve Coasters,
With Original Gold Boxes,
1960s.

Adam and Eve are each depicted across eight plates placed in two rows, the group together forming their bodies.

See:
Fornasetti: Designer of Dreams, Patrick Mauri├Ęs, page 238, the author writes- The idea of dividing up the bodies of Adam and Eve into twelve dinner plates is surely one that no one but Fornasetti. They were made in 1954. Each plate has its attractions, but like a jigsaw puzzle they only reveal their meaning when seen together.

Ecellent
Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, edited by Barnaba Fornasetti, page 600, # 122 for an Adam and an Eve in the 4-inch coaster format.

Also page 580, # 73 for packaging from 1960 which is identical to the box for this set of coasters.
