Champagne cover and cooler is made by Master Artisan Lorenzo Foglia from solid pure silver 999/°°. Inspired by Dante's Inferno and in particular the Giants trapped in ice, it is a wonderful celebration of Dante's 700th anniversary this year.
To join the celebrations of this founding father of the Italian language, we decided to reproduce a drawing originally made by Gustave Doré (picture 3) from his Inferno.
The cover has been completely handcrafted by Lorenzo Foglia, a Florentine master goldsmith. 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 he had to work the metal by hammering from the inside of the bottle, having access only from the bottom.
The cooler is are suitable for standard size (750ml) champagne bottles such as Moet Et Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Cristal, Pol Roger, Piper, Perrier Jouet, Taittinger, and Mumm. (not suitable for Dom Pérignon bottles due to their shape)
Lorenzo Foglia, was born in Viareggio in 1971. He grew up in his family workshop, and still very young, started working there together with his father and grandfather. There, he studied the art of metalworking and learned embossing and chisel techniques. During his career, he created furniture and jewelry for the Royal Houses of Europe, the theatre, and cinema. He won twice the international competition "Art in a jewel”, promoted by Florence Gift Mart. He is President of the Silversmiths of the city of Florence and he is “Master Craftsman” recognized by Tuscany Region, “OMA Craftsman”, and “Master of Art and Craft” for the Cologni Foundation of Milan.
The 'Emerald' champagne cover and cooler. Handmade in pure silver 999 by Master Artisan Stefano Vigni. Unique piece, signed by the artist.We love this collection of champagne covers and coolers because they are the teamwork of several Florentine silversmiths. In this case, Stefano as you can read on the cover inspired by the famous Fabergé Eggs. Furthermore, the silver used is not the usual maximum of 925/1000 (where other metals are mixed to give hardness), but 999/1000. A pure as it gets, with green enamel and real rubies. This luxe champagne cover/glacette in solid silver 999/°° plated in 24K gold and handcrafted over several months by the expert hands of master goldsmith Stefano Vigni as an homage to the preciousness of the Fabergé Eggs. The addition of emerald enamel and small red stones add vibrancy to the whole, finely embossed and chased to achieve a splendid geometric design of unrivaled refinement.
