Massive Sterling Pumpkin by Fratelli Cacchione



Sterling, by Fratelli Cacchione, Milan, Italy, circa 1960s-1970s. Known for his fabulous sterling pumpkins, 5th generation Italian silversmith Fratelli Cacchione is easily the most renowned silver maker of his generation. Combining old-world techniques handed down in his family with modernist and contemporary decorative aesthetics, his firm has produced collections for both Tiffany and Cartier. Most of the pumpkins Fratelli Cacchione produced are only 6 to 8 inches in diameter, essentially the size of a sugar pumpkin. This one is enormous. Measuring 15 1/2 inches high, it is the size of a very large jack-o-lantern! Probably one-of-a-kind, this pumpkin is perfect as a centerpiece on a table or as a decorative accent that will center an entire room. It is superbly fabricated and in excellent condition. Size: 15 1/2 inches high by 12 inches diameter. Weight: 107 oz. gross weight Hallmarks: Sterling, '.925', for Milan and maker's mark 'FC'.
