Footnotes

  • The 'a stampa' or 'a stampino' designs that proved so popular at the Doccia factory were developed during the factory's first period. The factory records reveal that between 1747-1763 the painter Bastiano Buonamici, called 'il Micio', was asked to develop the 'stampe' or cut-out designs for these kinds of pieces. It appears that the basis for the flower garlands can be found in real flowers that were copied as cut-outs onto copper plates. A letter from Gaspero Bruschi and Jacopo Fanciullacci to Carlo Ginori in 1755 suggests that the technique was still being developed: 'Micio fa le prove dei rami con i fiori per i tondini (...). Riceverà un libro di fiori che non paion cattivi, per copiarsi nel rame' [Micio is doing the tests with flowers for the roundels in copper. He will receive a book with flowers that seem suitable to be copied in copper] (Biancalana 2009, p.147). Other Stampino pieces were recently sold in these Rooms as part of the Collezione Procida Mirabelli di Lauro, 6 July 2010.
