This Champagne K-Over is a real “Work of Art”.

The artist transformed a pure Silver 999/°° K-Over into a precious  treasure chest to show and enjoy your Champagne, while it keeps it fres as well. The Artist took inspiration from the beautiful and well-known painting “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt and perfectly managed to reproduce the beauty and elegance of one of the most perfect oeuvres of Art Nouveau.

The K-Over has been completely handcrafted by Stefano Vigni, a Florentine Master Goldsmith and a “Fabergè Workmaster”. The production process has taken several months, and the techniques used are overhang, chisel and painting. The Artist worked on a single piece of Silver, and this increased the complexity of the task, it is also important to underline the great attention in chiselling geometrical designs.

This Champagne K-Over is made in pure Silver 999/°° and has been plated in 24/K Gold. Painting the K-Over was challenging, because of the many details that required to be painted with different polishes.
