Pineapple Pitcher, 1960s

    Newer Older

    Considered by author Andrea DiNoto "a Pop Art treasure" this Polyethylene plastic pitcher was made in Brazil by Trol in the 1960s and reissued shortly in 1992 from the same molds. The origin of the design is uncertain, probably american. It is considered an icon of plastics kitsch in Brazil.
