Antonio Carli Earrings


An Italian 18kt Gold & Micro Mosaic Pair of Earrings

made by Antonio Carli, Rome, circa 1870

Drop: 1 ¾”

Antonio Carli was apprenticed to Adriano Fabbri, becoming a master goldsmith of Rome in 1856. From 1857 to 1866 his workshop was at 76 Piazza S. Silvestro, and he is recorded in the ‘Libro Per Tutti’ for Rome of 1869 at 158 via Babuino. Bulgari (1958) does not record the continuation of the workshop after 1868, but the name of Carli appears in the Murray Handbooks from 1871 until at least the mid-l880s; by 1888 the name no longer appears in the Murray guides.
