Signed on the neckline: Valay 1830 – Rome
After searches, we don’t know any bronze-smelter who worked in Roma at this time.
The precise work and the high quality design suggests that Valay was working for an important “bottega”.
We can suppose it was the “bottega degli Spagna”, reference of which Valadier made in 1829 and which was especially specialized in the silverware. Nevertheless, this “bottega” also had a production of bronzes.
