Silver-Plated Scalloped Nut Dish by Michael Graves for Swid Powell
Here is a very famous design by Michael Graves for Swid Powell that is very difficult to find.
The bowl is peen-hammered and sits on a fixed cruciform base.
The initial drawings for this are in the Tapert book on page 40, and there is a photo of Graves holding a porcelain prototype of this dish.
The dish is marked “Swid Powell”, “Michael Graves 1989″, with his impressed signature and the standard “Made in Italy” and “silver plate” marks.
