Description :
Enamelled and gold flecked copperware are a rare and highly refined feature of the decorative arts of the Italian Renaissance, of which less than three hundred pieces survive, and which are traditionally referred to as Venetian. The metal which gives the object its shape supports a richly coloured decoration formed by white, blue, violet or green glass, added in layers onto a white or opaque glass base, or a mixture of white and translucent glass. This is then decorated by red and turquoise highlights, with additional decoration in gold playing an important part in the process. Admired and sought after in the 19th century, when the main European collections were built up, these objects, whose origins date back to the end of the fifteenth century, were subsequently forgotten. Most of the surviving pieces belong to dinner sets, and include mainly bowls, some of which with lids, dishes, plates, basins, salt cellars, ewers and pilgrim bottles. Other typologies include caskets, candlesticks and a mirror, while a few liturgical objects, paxes, altar cruets and reliquaries indicate that some had a religious function. Continue reading…
