Product Description

A beautifully fine pietra dura plaque, in the style of Richard Blow (1904-1992), made in Florence during the 1960s.

The plaque depicts a trio of butterflies on a polished black marble background. The butterflies are made up of fragments of coloured marble and have been mounted in a modern gilt frame.

The reverse of the frame bears a ‘Il Mosaico di Firenze’ label with an address for ‘Firenze. Piazza S. Croce.15R.” There is also a handwritten note from the previous owner that reads: “Given P.W. by Lady M. after a happy visist to Florence with Dick & OFM in October 66.”

The condition of the plaque is very good, with no wear or restoration. The gesso on the outside of the frame has suffered a slight knock.

Size of Frame: 12.5 x 9.5 x 2cm
Size of Plaque: 9.2 x 6.3cm
Weight: 177g
