Description ------- One (1), rare & out-of-production, magnificent, vintage 1960s-70s, cast iron, "HOBART", originally known as the "CD 30" (CD for "CAMPDEN DESIGN" range) fruit stand or tazza, designed by Robert Welch in 1961. Stand has its original, raw iron finish which was intentional - wabi-sabi - meant to acquire a patina of time.
Piece should be kept dry. It has acquired a lightly aged patina over the years, but has been well-kept, with minimal rust. Two parts - top tray unscrews from the base. Base, with top tray unscrewed, can be used alone as a pillar candle holder. Not all R Welch fruit stands were made this way - with a candlestick as a base.
This is a rare variation, with rare unpainted finish as well. I have communication from the R. Welch archivist which I will include in the package for the new owner. Approximate size: 6" tall x 10" diameter, overall. Shown with a large lemon, for scale.
WELCH ENGLAND deeply, in the casting, visible when base is unscrewed from tray. Guaranteed old and as described.Please check out my other things for more cool stuff.
