ASTI, Italy – Nova Ars with E-Art Auctions will auction off a 20th century art glass collection by Studio Davico on Sept. 17. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Studio Davico is an Italian company that has specialized in glass and crystal since 1920. It works with a unique technique: the engraving on the glass using acid. Born near artists like Gallè and Lalique, Studio Davico designed also for Fontana Arte and Cristal Art. Presently it continues the tradition with a particular focus on furniture and interior design. This collection is unique and priceless and all pieces are hand-painted.

At Studio Davico three generations—grandfather, father and son—are related by blood but especially united by a common passion: the art and the glass.

Grandfather Davico Giacomo started his activity as an artistic glassmaker. Born near artists like Gallè, Lalique and Val Saint Lambert, he loved popular traditions and ancient methods.

In this way acid engraving had its beginning.

A few pieces from Giacomo’s production are in the auction.

Father Davico Remo (1911-1971) went on with this work designing a new technique with acid. The deep engraving on the glass is unique.

Son Davico Eugenio, encouraged by his father, started working artistic glass and designing for Fontana Arte and Cristalart. He continues the Remo tradition with Davico Specchi, focusing on interior design.

The company currently produces mirrors and bathroom decors, doors and panels, tables, lights, etc.

Studio Davico is present in many international exhibitions like Dusseldorf (1965), Parigi, Brussels, Maastricht.
