Augarten Hand-Painted Porcelain Lemon Box

€250

Sweet but never sour, this porcelain box takes the shape of an Amalfi lemon. It’s as realistic as ever, with every quirk of the peel achieved through hand-painting alone. To bring it to life, Augarten summoned the artistic eye of Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli, who looked to his garden for inspiration.

Augarten

This Vienna workshop defined baroque pottery in the 18th century, then reinvented itself as a purveyor of Modernism. Today Augarten's skilled ceramicists incorporate 300 years of design traditions in every dish, refining each piece by hand and etching it with the recognisable “Bindenschild” coat of arms.
