A silver plate Rhyton form boar vase After Gabriella Crespi (Italian, 1922 – 2017) for Christian Dior

A silver plate Rhyton form boar vase After Gabriella Crespi (Italian, 1922 – 2017) for Christian Dior. From the early 1960’s her objects were commissioned by Dior for the gifts department, home decor and dining.


The artist was clearly inspired by the likes of the architect Alexandre-Théodore Brongniart (French, 1739 –1813) whose ‘cornet’ Sevres vases with boars now on display in the Louvre. Brongniart derived the shapes from ancient Rhyton drinking vessels. The ‘Rhyton’ form originates from the ancient Greeks, a conical horn shape, typically formed into the shape of an animal's head. Italian, circa 1960.
