“The Beautiful Image”The charm of the past transferred to the present.
Born from an idea of Cristina Casali and Smeralda Restivo, who are long – time friends, sharing a passion for History and Art. Glass furnishing accessories, created with an antique and refined technique of etching and image transfers. The current découpage method was developed from this idea. Details of miniature works, often anonymous and forgotten, with gentle strokes, sometimes curious, eccentric or grotesque in which is immortalised the spirit of an era, an emotion, an idea. The beauty of life, told by contemporaries. Plates, trays, valet dishes and also semi-spherical paperweights with a lens effect, all in pure and transparent crystal. Designed as desk objects or simply decorative. The subjects to choose from are endless. Objects with a story to tell or simply interesting, those who choose them for themselves or as personal gifts.The cushions are printed by us, using pure linen or pure cotton. Hand-made by expert seamstresses as they were in the past. Closed by laces or mother-of-pearl buttons, enhancing home interiors with favourite themes. A space in which to transfer phrases, monograms or figures chosen from our archives or from a personal idea….Here are some examples
