What a Stud

Upon hearing the term "Rostrato",  the name given to this line by legendary factory Barovier & Toso, one might assume this would be a reference to the thorn of a rose, but the translation from Italian is literally "Beak", as in that of a bird. While the line was originally designed by Ercole Barovier in the late 30s, this lidded jar was made in the 40s or 50s when accessories for the vanity were in still very much in vogue.
