No nineteenth-century lady of fashion visiting Italy would consider her tour of Rome complete without calling at Castellani's shop near the Spanish Steps to acquire one of the famous pieces of Italian Archaeological jewellery offered there. This is a history of the firm founded by Fortunato Pio Castellani (1794-1865) and continued by his sons until 1930. It is also the history of the firm started by Carlo Giuliano (1852-1895) who managed the Paris and London branches of Castellani and of his son Arthur. The interest in these two firms lies both in their use of a fascinating range of materials and techniques and in their interpretation of antique sources to create jewellery in the spirit of nineteenth-century eclecticism. 115 black & white illustrations and 45 in colour. Text in French.
