The firm of Villari was established in the late 1960s. Cesare and Silvia themselves mould the models and prototypes, which are then faithfully reproduced by their talented team. All Villari items are signed by the artist, CesareVillari, as a gurantee of their authenticity, and bear the fire-impressed trademark “PorcellaneVillari” and the Capodimonte letter “N”, which denotes a particular style of Italian porcelain. Eache item comes with a Certificate of Origin, which guarantees its provenance and that it is made entirely by hand using authentic materials. Made in Italy and exported worldwide, PorcellaneVillari items are easily recognisable by their attention to detail and refinement. Prestigious artefacts, they will always be admired for the history and tradition they embody. One of the factors that has brought success and international prestige to PorcellaneVillari is of course the great artistic and technical skills evident in their original creations. Quality, too, is an undeniable feature of PorcellaneVillari and a constant concern in the development and philosophy of the firm. These are the factors wich lie behind the pieces they produce from day to day. Their work is not inspired exclusively by Capodimonte Porcelain, but also by the Italian Baroque style evident in so many of the churches, fountains or ornaments one encounters in wandering round Italian towns and cities. Recently, the firm has been experimenting with the Empire style, achieving some very interesting results. Where individual pieces are concerned, it must be stressed that every single figure is finished in the finest detail using costly paints based on special oils extracted from firtrees and lavender. They are then enhanced with 18- carat pure gold and platinum, and some pieces are further embellished by applying Swarovski crystals to give them a unique shine and elegance.
