Pair of Black & White Fornasetti Style Perpetual Face Vases

The Vitruvian Collection is a series of sculptures that celebrate the human form as well as the human spirit.

Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, each sculpture contains 8 stoic faces, each sharing eyes with the next.

Sir Thomas Browne once said,

"There are mystically in our faces certain characters which carry in them the motto of our souls."

These cold cast resin vases measure 9 3/4" tall and are 8" in diameter.

They have a faux leather textured finish.

125 Years of British Luxury


  The ultimate purveyor of luxury handbags, purses and leather diaries.

Engagements Featherweight Book circa 1980

 SMYTHSON was always more than a mere stationary shop.

Its first store opened on Bond Street, London, in 1887.  

It started life supplying the smart set with calling cards, the elegant version of today's business card, as well as tissue-lined envelopes and gilt-edged invitations to coming out balls.

The product, however, that made its name was the featherweight diary.

For the first time a gentleman could carry his appointment book in his jacket pocket thanks to it being printed on ultra-thin paper.

But the company soon branched out to supplying travel goods to the generation that enjoyed the golden age of steamboats and motor cars.

For anyone posted to the far flung corner of the Empire, they could purchase from Smythson not just a diary, travel journal and headed notepaper, but also a leather case to store their shaving kit or toiletries.

It still sells stationary, including old-fashioned writing paper - it holds three Royal Warrants - as well as brightly coloured notebooks, leather key fobs and passport holders. Their products are known worldwide for being the epitome of quality when it comes to leather books and stationary.

Ceramic Turtle Box

A whimsical white ceramic turtle box with a snail on top.

A fun decorative accessory with storage!

Would be a fabulous addition to any vignette.

Nice detail even on the bottom.

I love it on a stack of books.

It measures 6 1/4" long and is 4" high.

Bamboo Dish Display Stand

An elegant two tier bamboo display stand with fold down handle.

Makes a great caddy for organizing and displaying dishes for a buffet or party.

Two tiers make it easy to set out both small and large plates.

Or, just lots of the same sized ones.

These are small canape or dessert sized plates.

Pottery Barn - New Old Stock

I came across these items I purchased from Pottery Barn a while ago but never got around to using, so I thought I would offer them for sale here on Shop La Dolfina.

First up is this Wall Shadow Box

 As you can see from the photo there is a ding (patina) on the top left corner, otherwise it is in unopened brand new condition.

I was originally going to display a collection of sand dollars in it.

Next up is this classic navy and white Camden Frame which could also be utilized as a mirror on top of a dresser, which is one of my favorite ways to use large size frames.

8 x 10

It is trimmed in navy blue leather which looks so crisp against the off white canvas fabric.


Both items come in their original boxes.


$25 Each
