This Champagne Cover belongs to the Works of Art Collection.
The subject of our pure silver 999/°° K-OVER is Amore e Psiche, one of the most famous sculpture of Antonio Canova.
The cover was designed to celebrate love: the artist reproduced Amore kissing the nymph Psiche.
The cover has been completely handcrafted by Giuliano Foglia, a Florentine master goldsmith. The production process took several months and the techniques used are overhang and chasing. The core value of the product is given by its artistic perfection. Indeed, the artist worked a single piece of silver and the complexity of the task was increased by the fact that the reverse side is missing. It is also important to underline the three-dimensional effect realized in chiseling Amore e Psiche. In the future, it will be hard to find such a talented artist.
The beauty of the product is increased by the innovative texture that had been used to reproduce a Diamond effect. The Diamond effect has been realized by Gabriele Tinacci.
Giuliano Foglia was born in 1947 in Florence. In the ‘60s, despite his young age, Giuliano started working with his father in the family’s workshop. There, he learned how to design, overhang and chisel. During his long career he realized Madonne, eighteenth-century scenes and fountains. His masterpieces are Calice of the Saint Galgano and the Cups for San Marino Grand Prix (F1). Thanks to his lifelong experience he is now considered to be one of the best chisels in Italy. He has been recently working with K-Over for the project: Works of Art.

All our champagne covers are produced in solid silver 999/°°. The usage of pure material is a novelty: as a matter of fact, silverware is usually produced in sterling silver. Our choice can be explained with three reasons: First of all, we want to provide a high valuable product to our customers. Secondly, pure silver is hard to oxidize, so that it is easier to be cleaned and polished. Last but not least, silver has an antibacterial property which makes it safe to use for food and beverage.
