The bust represents a smiling young woman, her left hand on her
hip and her right hand resting elegantly on the other forearm. Her brown hair is arranged in a chignon
tied with a blue ribbon. She is wearing a blue striped bodice whose thin straps
have a repeating pattern and, around her shoulders, a shawl with large blue
stylised flowers on a white background. Most likely this piece was designed by Giò
Ponti when he became artistic director of Richard Ginori and was modelled by
Giorgio Supino in the San Cristoforo factory in Milan. The bust was shown at
the First International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Monza in 1923.
