Footnotes

  • Sandro Vacchetti was a former director of Lenci. In 1934 he formed a partnership with the ceramist Nello Franchini and named the new company `Essevi'. During the 1930's the factory specialised in producing hand-painted models that captured the new found freedoms and glamourous occupations enjoyed by the young female of the day.
