    AmberRose
    (364 items)

    I am falling in love with this piece. It is a very clear, vibrant lucite by Guzzini in Italy. I picked this up at a SA and it was covered in that attic muck, sort of that sticky dust. As I washed it, being careful of the sticker, she just got shinier and shinier.
    I can't seem to determine dates on this piece. Guzzini still is in business today and seems to do mostly kitchen pieces. I have found this "pencil holder organizer" on some selling sites saying that it is from the 70s but there are hints that they are still making it (???) Can't seem to confirm this, and most the sites I find are in Italian (V can you help here??)
    Austro, totally thought of you when I spotted this.

      Hi Amber! It's called "BLOCCO VIP": Portapenne, portabuste e portacancelleria
      It's a VIP Block: penholder, envelope holder and pencil tray all in one.

      Not sure who is the designer yet!

      Cheers! Knew your Italian talent would be of great aide to help ID this. Wonderful!

      Pleasure! Have you seen any of the NATO pollies?

      Funny you ask! Downtown is on total lockdown but nothing is in the news. It is really odd. All that I know has been pretty respectful on both sides. No bottles thru windows or any authority smack downs. But feel like I am in blackout.

      Everyone's there! Our Julia, Your Barack, Hollande etc! G8 & the rest! BIG!

      Heck yea but every main road to downtown is closed. Trains on super filter and half the El lines are shutdown. Lockdown! Half my friends had to move out for the weekend. Half can't get to work. I am avoiding it like the plague.

      Stay at home! I agree. Security nightmare!
