1971 Villeroy & Boch Avant Garde Flatware by Helen von Boch (1938 – 2007) and Federigo Fabbrini (1928 – 2007)

Here is a very rare set of six stainless flatware place settings designed to fit inside the stackable plastic La Bomba picnic set designed by Boch and Fabbrini in the 1968/69 time period.  The design was submitted for a United States patent in 1971, which was awarded in 1973.

The fork, spoon and knife are interlocking and nesting.  Marked “Villeroy & Boch Avant Garde, Made in West Germany.”  Generally they came in sets of four, because that is what the picnic set held.
