"Spratling of Peru"

Graziella Laffi, often referred to as the “Spratling of Peru” designed and made exceptional silver hollowware and exquisite jewelry pieces in both modern and pre-Columbian designs. She was born in Florence, Italy but lived and worked in Peru and drew much inspiration from the country’s rich architectural past. Her works span from early 1950’s to early 1970’s.

Recently, the Graziella Laffi Private Collection has emerged and has sparked some interest. Her works of precious metal designs combined with geometric motifs is extraordinary. And some of these vessels are extremely unique and oversized.
