Description
Ashtray - .800 silver - brandimarte - Italy - 1980
Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear - 27 g

Magnificent Silver 800 object signed by Brandimarte, the famous Florentine silversmith.
The piece depicts an ivy leaf in all its details and external veins. The external parts are irregularly shaped, as in nature. More than a simple decorative item, this is a true sculpture and it is no coincidence it bears the signature of a prominent silversmith.
Furnishing accessory, suitable as an ornament placed on a piece of furniture, or as an ashtray. Nice is also the stalk that acts as a grip.
The rear is smooth.
The silversmith’s hallmark BR and the silver title 800 are on the top part.
It demonstrates how Art can be made also in a small size.
