Campari: an incredibly rare silver and enamel cocktail shaker in the form of a bottle of Campari, made by the famed Milanese silversmith Romeo Miracoli in the style of the 1949 bottle design. With a fluid-shaped neck, embossed screw cap in the form of a pull cork, and realistic label with vivid blue enamel and Greek key border, the bottle design has been faithfully reproduced into an extremely attractive and practical piece of silver barware. Stamped R. MIRACOLI MILANO to the base, Italian, 1949.

Height: 10 inches (26 cm).

Miracoli are Italy’s oldest silversmiths, established in 1912, and continue to this day in Milan producing outstanding service and presentation silver for private clients and brands such as FIAT, Mercedes-Benz and Beretta.

A very scarce, 1967 cigar ashtray created for Campari by Bruno Munari (Italian, 1907-1998), in the Pop Art style, with extracts of the famous Campari logo text, set on a white glaze with two cigar rests trimmed with gilt. The base marked in script ‘B. Munari “Il Manifesto” Collezione Campari, Made in Italy by Campari’. Italian, circa 1967.

Size: 8 inches (20 cm) x 6½ inches (17 cm).

Munari was an extremely versatile artist and designer, who contributed greatly to the fields of visual art, communication and graphic design. Part of the Italian Futurist movement, Munari was well known for his collage illustrations which featured in Italian preWar magazines, of which this classic 1967 design for Campari is highly reminiscent.
