This champagne bottle cover is a distinguished piece from our Nature Collection, showcasing a captivating scene of horses galloping proud and free. Crafted from pure 999/°° silver, this K-OVER beautifully captures the dynamic and spirited essence of these majestic creatures, a theme often celebrated in art for its depiction of the profound and true relationship between a horse and its rider.

The cover has been handcrafted by Lorenzo Foglia, a master goldsmith based in Florence. The creation of this piece spanned several months, involving meticulous techniques such as overhang and chasing. The artist started with a cylindrical single piece of silver, working from the inside to intricately chisel each detail of the horses. This inside-out approach significantly enhanced the complexity of the task, emphasizing the artisan’s dedication to achieving artistic perfection. The remarkable precision in the chiselling of the horses underscores the exceptional craftsmanship and great attention to detail that defines this exquisite cover.
