1950's mid-century modern aldo tura for macabo cusano bamboo and metal thermal carafe with metal and cork lid made in italy. It is made using glass, metal and bamboo and measures 9 h x 7 w handle to opposite side x 5 d x 5 bottom diameter and weighs 1 pound 13 ounces. This designer born in 1909 was committed to slow, traditional hand craftsmanship with intricate, complex forms and labor intensive processes that could never be replicated in a large scale factory and became highly collectable. He created high end furniture and accessories that were typified by rich materials, sculptural forms and high end artisanal techniques. Very good preowned condition, no large cracks, missing pieces, small bamboo chip on base-touched up.
Also it does show light wear secondary to age and use, as seen in the photographs. This item is made of metal and wood, glass.
