Tuscan ND Dolfi 8.5X5.5″ Rectangular Box
Keep treasures in this elegant handcrafted ceramic box. The spheres are like polka dots sprinkled about the outside of the box. The gold is striking against the white.
It is 24 karat gold. It is 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 an 18% 24 karat gold and 82% solvent solution.
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 and 5.5″ wide. It is 2.75″ high. Measurements are approximate.
