Piero Fornasetti Calendar Plate for the Year 1968.

1968 was the first year that Piero Fornasetti created calendar plates. The design of the 1968 Piero Fornasetti calendar plate depicts a large golden moon face with the months of the year arrayed around it with the year date below and salutations above.

According to the Fornasetti website, "The calendar plate is a distinctive Fornasetti trademark. It was born in 1968 from the “annuari”, limited edition hand-printed booklets designed by Piero Fornasetti at the request of Gio Ponti in the 1940s. Each year is described by an original design and a typical Fornasetti motif: suns, moons, playing cards, owls, cats, zodiac signs etc."

From 1968 to 1988, Piero Fornasetti then created and produced the calendar plate as an annual tradition to bring in the New Year which was not sold but given as a gift from Fornasetti to friends and clients.

In 1989, his son Barnaba Fornasetti continued in his father’s footsteps establishing a limited edition of 700 or 750 plates
