Buccellati: A Silver Menagerie

Featuring selections from the museum‘s collection of exquisite silver creations designed and fabricated in Italy by the luxury jewelry firm of Buccellati, and generously donated by Betty Grisham of Huntsville is the outstanding permanent collection, Buccellati: A Silver Menagerie. Due to Mrs. Grisham’s remarkable vision and support, the Huntsville Museum of Art can claim to have the world’s largest public collection of these unique works of art.

The present house of Buccellati was founded in 1919 in Milan, Italy and originated what is known as the Buccellati style, which combines Renaissance period techniques, luxury materials and the extensive use of texture engraving to create objects of great beauty. This distinctive style won favor with a discriminating international clientele, including the Vatican as well as the Royal Houses of Italy, Spain, Belgium, England and Egypt.

Highlights of the Museum’s collection include a stunning four-foot tall flamingo and delightful reclining giraffe, inspired by a trip to Africa; a spectacular marine centerpiece consisting of Mediterranean sea creatures arranged around a natural amethyst geode; and a new family of deer commissioned by the museum to honor Betty Grisham, the remarkable woman who conceived the world-class collection.
