Italian born, Sciarrotta (1907 - 1985) was smuggled out of Italy in 1944 by U.S Army Intelligence to work on submarine armaments. After the war he opened Sciarrotta Silversmiths in Newport where his work was noted by Gorham, Shreve Crump & Low and Bailey, Banks & Biddle, the three firms soon began commissioning special orders from. By the time of his retirement in 1975, several of Sciarrotta's works were in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.
The excellent original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no monograms, removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
The soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
We have a variety of these bowl available, in different sizes and in double and triple forms.
