ALDO TURA BAR, ITALY CIRCA 1960's

Wonderful bar made by Aldo Tura, Italy in the 1960s. The bar was executed in lacquered beige and brown goatskin with brass applications and it is in nearly excellent condition. Along with artists like Piero Fornasetti and Carlo Bugatti, Aldo Tura (1909-1963) definitely belonged to the mavericks of Italian design. Whereas the former chose abundant figurative decorations as his hallmark, Bugatti and Tura focused on applying a specific material. Tura founded his workshop in Milan in 1939 and the company has been in operation ever since.
