An absolute most for collectors! The talented Sandro absorbed the inspiration he could glean from life in his small hometown of Carrù, Piedmont; later, his memories would be crucial in the very first works he created in Turin, when he started attending the Accademia Albertina at the young age of twelve. As a painter, Vacchettis career began in the Piedmontese capital and then continued in the United States: between Boston and New York, he developed and perfected his signature technique in female portraiture and fine ceramics.He created small female figurines that were very dear to a few American movie stars. In 1919, back in Turin, he had the chance to meet Enrico Scavini, owner of the famous doll company Lenci, and his wife, Elena König. Vacchetti was Lencis artistic director from 1922 to 1934, then founded his own ceramics company, Essevi (mimicking the sound of his initials in Italian), which he led until 1952.
