Provenience: Previous owner was an high executive with Scania Trucks, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Antonio Belgiorno and María Angelica Morteo, married in 1931 and this heralded the start of the Belgiorno style in silver. When they married, they lived in La Falda, in the Argentinian province of Córdoba.

In the early ‘30s, Argentinean and European society frequented the Eden Hotel in La Falda where Antonio Belgiorno presented his work for the first time. Due to the originality of his designs, the business grew rapidly.

They established the business in a chalet, which served both as their home and also as the store for the sale of jewelry. From those early days the future of the business was designed to attract the customer with discerning taste.

The couple was childless however one of María Angelica's nephews, Juan Morteo, who lived with them, began working for the company. In the following years, the company opened branches in several Argentinean cities, such as Rosario de la Frontera, Bariloche (in the Llao Llao hotel), Mar del Plata (boulevard), and Capital Federal, where they originally moved the main store.

In 1962, Antonio became ill and he died four years later.
