This champagne cover belongs to our collection: work of art. The oeuvre was realized by a Japanese artist who wanted to celebrate her home country. Indeed, she chiselled on a pure silver 999/°° K-OVER a cherry blossom. This masterpiece has been exposed at Four Season (2019, Florence), Cannes Yachting Festival (2019, Cannes) and Origin (2019, Milan).
The cover has been completely handcrafted by Mary Yoshida a Japanese master silversmith. 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 great attention paid in chiseling the flowers. In addition, the cover is enriched by some mother of pearl settings.

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 by three reasons. Firstly, we want to provide a high valuable product to our customers. Secondly, pure silver is hard to oxidise, so that it is easier to be cleaned. Last but not least, silver has an antibacterial property which make it safe.
