ALESSANDRO ALBRIZZI Italian 1970s Modernist Chrome Lucite 5pc Fireplace Tool Set. Today we are happy to offer for sale a beautiful 1970's modernist chrome and lucite fireplace tool set by renowned Italian designer Alessandro Albrizzi! Albrizzi designed furniture and objects in a wide variety of styles such as Classical, Baroque, Bauhaus and others. The designer eventually went on to open elegant shops all over the world. Albrizzi was well known for socializing and designing for the Jet Set crowd of the 1960s.Albrizzi's work and reputation became internationally known and his pieces are available from the finest dealers to this day. This stylish and timeless 5-piece fireplace set is the epitome of 1970's sleek modernism. The set is beautifully designed and expertly crafted of heavy guage chrome, lucite and leather. The 5-pc set is composed of the following: 1 tool holder featuring a clear solid lucite post mounted to a chrome base 1 chrome brush/broom 1 chrome poker 1 chrome shovel.
1 large chrome and leather sling-style kindling/log/wood holder (rarely found). The set features minimalist/modernist sculptural forms: the rectangular tower of the tool holder, created of thick water-clear lucite, sits securely on a square chrome base, attached at two points by screws. The three chrome tool holders are fastened just as securely at the top by two screws each. The tools are noticably substantial - made of solid rod and thick sheet metal with handles stained to a very dark brown that reads as back under lower light conditions. They are made to last a lifetime and then some.
The kindling basket which is quite rare, features chrome construction with four flat legs curving gently down from the frame. A thick black belting leather sling is securely attached, perfect for holding enough firewood to keep a good fire blazing! Per the original owner it was quite a pricy splurge that we're glad they sprung for.
The set presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with wear/scuffing, minor oxidation and patina commensurate with occasional use and age.
