This wine cover is a proud piece from our K-OVER design collection. Drawing inspiration from the Kintsugi philosophy, the artist crafted this pure silver 999/°° K-OVER into a novel design piece. Embracing the Japanese ethos that our past shapes us, the design suggests that we shouldn’t conceal it. The golden lines on the cover symbolize our scars, while the entirety of the cover depicts our life journey. Meticulously handcrafted by Marco Fedi, a Florentine master goldsmith, this creation’s production spanned several weeks. Employing techniques like spinning and chasing, the artist manipulated a single silver piece, its complexity accentuated by the absence of a reverse side.

Technical Feature 

K-OVER is a pioneering brand from P.M.P Firenze, a company with a rich heritage with over 40 years in the silverware industry. This extensive experience has culminated in the creation of a revolutionary wine cover. Our innovative K-OVERs are designed to keep your cherished wine bottles chilled. These covers are reusable: simply unscrew the cap at the bottom to replace the bottle. They have been showcased only at public events and are tailored specifically for European Bordelaise bottles.

Distinctively, every K-OVER wine cover is crafted from 999/°° solid silver, a departure from the conventional sterling silver used in silverware. This choice is rooted in three key considerations. Firstly, it underscores our commitment to offering products of exceptional value. Secondly, the higher purity of silver significantly reduces the likelihood of oxidation, ensuring easier maintenance. Finally, silver’s inherent antibacterial properties enhance the safety of the product.
