Excellent with small repaired frit to edge on one Eve plate.
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 would conceive. They were made in 1954. Each plate has its attractions, but like a jigsaw puzzle they only reveal their meaning when seen together.

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