Kartell, Italy, 1972

I’ve had this entry in the pipeline for some time, waiting until I could find as many colors of this magazine rack as I could before posting.  This post is specific to the 4675 Portariviste, my post of December 21, 2009 focused on the 4676.  The similarities between the two are obvious.

I am very interested in any information that can be contributed to this entry to further my knowledge of this piece. I would especially appreciate a photograph of the original box and information about original cost.
