The Nymphaea Bowl from the Boscoreale Collection is inspired by the eponymous collection on display at the Louvre Museum, an exceptional example of silver from antiquity discovered in the area of Pompeii and adorned with lush figurative details of skeletal and floral motifs that relate to the ephemeral nature of life. Here, the Franchi workshop reinterprets this legendary collection with a contemporary, geometric aesthetic that maintains the thematic integrety of the works in allusions to organic forms taken from nature. The Nymphaea Bowl takes its name from the water lilly, also known as nymphaea, for the silhouette it creates in resemblance of the flower. The stunning geometry of the diamond-shaped base makes this piece a spectacular item of contemporary artisanship.
