Showpieces From Buccellati & Tiffany & Co. Shine in Auctions at Showplace’ New York City Estate AuctionSep 24, 2023 12:00 EDT
The Buccellati style is an evolution born from its originator, Mario Buccellati. The “Prince of Goldsmiths” founded the Maison in 1919. Since its beginning a century ago, the Buccellati family firm has become synonymous with tradition, creativity, and skill. Buccellati’s craftsmanship revolves around intricate textural details inspired by Venetian lace, Etruscan patterns, Italian vegetation, insects, and animals. Born and nurtured during apprenticeship with his father Mario, Gianmaria Buccellati (Italian, 1929 – 2015) began his love affair with stones. This led Gianmaria Buccellati to found the Italian Gemological Institute (IGI) with some of his colleagues. Gianmaria would preside over the organization for 25 years. A silver and malachite centerpiece by Gianmaria Buccellati is available in the upcoming New York City Estate Auction, presented by Auctions at Showplace. Building on the iconic Buccellati leaf jewelry and silver pieces, this unusual hand-signed piece incorporates a large-sized malachite specimen issuing a cornucopia of harvest fruits. It is a unique piece.
A group of nine diminutive Georgian period taper candlesticks with some later examples is another notable lot. It comprises a pair of George II silver sticks with double crested wells and maker’s marks of John Cafe, London, 1744. A George II silver stick with detachable nozzle and maker’s marks of Ebenezer Coker (London 1757), alongside four American silver-gilt sticks from Tiffany & Co. (New York, 20th century), are included. The auction will also offer fine art, furniture, jewelry, Asian art, and more.
