Tuscan ND Dolfi 8.5X5.5″ Rectangular Box
The color of this box is an ever-elegant coral. It is the perfect place to keep treasures. The spheres are like polka dots sprinkled about the outside of the box.
The gold is striking against the coral color. It is 24 karat gold applied by the method known as Terza Cottura, which roughly translates to “the third cooking.” After the piece is cooked twice, as all Italian pottery is, the artisan applies a solution of 18% 24 karat gold and 82% solvents.
The Terza Cottura is done at a low temperature in the kiln so that the solvents can evaporate, leaving behind a thin coat of pure 24 karat gold. This box was handcrafted by ND Dolfi of Montelupo Fiorentino, Tuscany.
This box is 8.5″ long. It is 5.5″ wide, and 2.75″ high. Measurements are approximate.
