Precious 925 silver grape fruit bowl, chased with fruit decorations, entirely made by hand by the historic silversmith Brandimarte, active in Florence since 1955. For this artifact, the Brandimarte artisans were inspired by the noble furnishings present in the Medici collections and its decorations and by the festoons typical of the grotesque and of the Galleria degli Uffizi stuccoes. Brandimarte has created trays, fruit bowls and fruit stands for us with typically Renaissance festoon decorations in sterling silver. For centuries, the art of chasing has been the preferred decorative technique for the creation of valuable furnishings. Indeed, this type of workmanship has deep roots in Florence. The Medici family commissioned many objects made using this technique. Chasing was selected for the typical festoon motif, also to be seen in the Gallery’s grotesques and on the façade of the Limonaia in the Boboli Gardens. Their resemblance to certain artefacts to be found in the general catalogue of Le Gallerie degli Uffizi is evident.
