It would appear that a few designers in London took the opportunity to make some great copies of original pieces by others. Here’s a few!
Nieri Reg 901009 (left) and Salvatore Melani (right)
Duron Prod No 6048 (left) and Salvatore Melani (right)
The piece on the right is signed by Melani. It was called “La porteuse de bananes”
Nieri Reg 896009 and Salvatore Melani
Found the Melani piece on the Catawiki site.
Nieri Reg 893597 and an unknown artist
It may be that Nieri (left) changed the design before producing it, but Nieri doesn’t normally go for colours like this!
