Buccellati MI 15 or MI 26

Postby italianc » Mon Aug 24, 2015 4:09 am

Hi, I'm new to this site but am finding it a very useful reference point. I always thought the Buccellati mark was MI 15 , but i have also heard that MI 26 is also buccellati. Help and advice please? Thanks

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

The Italian registration number assigned to Mario Buccellati srl is 15 MI

See: Mario Buccellati

26 MI was assigned to Pradella Ilario di Gianangelo Pradella.

It of course would not be impossible for an item to be made by one silversmith and marked as thus, and then retailed by another silversmith, who in turn may well have applied their name also to the piece.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Trev. This now appears the case having researched further . It was made by Pradella Ilario but probably retailed by Bucceallati .

cheers

Hi There,

I am not the OP but I have been researching a piece in my grandmother's collection for a bit now that has the 26 MI stamp and Mario Buccellati and have just come across this post explaining the 26 MI mark on some pieces that are stamped Mario Buccellati. I have included photos of the marks on this piece as well as of the piece itself. It appears to be a Sterling soup tureen but I have had no success in finding similar pieces online; I'm trying to determine when and where this piece would have been crafted. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Weight: 2450g
Dimensions: ~14.25" handle to handle and stands about 11" foot to top of lid

The silverware factory Ilario Pradella, whose brand is registered in Milan in 1935, opens its headquarters in the Lombard capital in via Tadino.
The company produces refined and elegant objects (tureens, vases , bells, table cigar lighter, coffee services, candlesticks, centerpieces, among which a beautiful silver and vermeil embellished with lapis lazuli) both for its own brand, both on behalf of other exclusive brands such as Buccellati, Ansuini, Tiffany & Co. Some of his creations have been auctioned at Sotheby's. (Mb49)
