Rafael Marquina 1961 oil & vinegar cruet — reintroduced after 50 years by Mobles 114

At the humongous Milan Furniture Show, Mobles 114 — a Spanish manufacturer — reintroduced the iconic, original design of the Rafael Marquina 1961 oil and vinegar cruet. I can’t see yet where this is for sale. I’ll keep an eye out and provide that update. I LOVE the fact that authentic, original designs are coming back so strong. It was the 50th anniversary of the Milan Show — so retro nostalgia was Big BIg BIG, according to the New York Times.

    Oh my goodness. You know, Pam, I actually do love the house I’m in, it’s the first time in my life I’m not looking at other houses with longing but reading the N.Y. article I do wish I had more space. Plaintive sigh. I’m a decor ‘ahem’ and some awfully exciting things are happening these days that bespeak art as much as home furnishings. The 42.50 Pound Alessi light bulb is a bit steep, ya think? But such interesting stuff in the retro area.

    Great article. Thanks for pointing the way yet again!

    Greetings. Have you found a place yet where this classic cruet can be purchased? It used to be available at the Museum of Modern Art, but no longer. Thanks for any information you might have
