Catalogue note
Enrico Bosi (active 1850-1865) had his workshop in via Tornabuoni, Florence and later in Piazza San Trinit¡ in the same city. For several decades he supplied an international clientele visiting Florence and exhibited internationally as the label on this piece testifies. Together with makers such as Francesco Betti, Bianchini, and the Buoninsegni brothers, he filled the void left by the decline of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, supporting the high demand for these luxury objects by aristocratic and bourgeois patrons. He was a personal acquaintance of Victor Emmanuele II, who made him an equerry and acquired pieces from him such as the cabinet on stand now in Palazzo Pitti, Florence.
