Piero Fornasetti Porcelain Calendar Plate for 1971,
4th in series.

The design of the 1971 Fornasetti calendar plate depicts a gilt crescent moon face on the right and a gilt human Sun face opposite with the words Happy, Gluck, Liches, Heureux, Felix, Buon down the center with the year 1971 below. The two external “ones”in the date are over-sized and each contain the months of the year.

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
