This champagne cover is a remarkable addition to our K-OVER Art collection.

Crafted from pure silver 999/°°, the artist skillfully depicted a scene from the epic poem “Orlando Furioso” by Ariosto. The cover portrays the captivating moment when Angelica, kidnapped and bound to a rock, is rescued by Rinaldo riding his hippogriff as they battle against a fearsome orca.

Lorenzo Foglia, a master goldsmith from Florence, meticulously handcrafted this cover over several months. Employing the techniques of repoussage and chasing, he transformed a single piece of silver into a true work of art. The absence of a reverse side presented an added challenge, amplifying the complexity of the task. Notably, great attention was devoted to the chiseling of the human figures, resulting in exquisite detail and lifelike forms. Lorenzo Foglia’s exceptional talent sets him apart as a truly exceptional artist.

Discover the unparalleled artistry and exquisite craftsmanship captured in this champagne cover. As time passes, finding such a gifted artist will become increasingly rare. Embrace the extraordinary beauty of this unique creation, proudly showcased in our K-OVER Art collection.
