Manufactuerer of handmade Tableware and Photoframes. The company traces its history back to Osvaldo Benvenuti who, as a 14 year old in 1930, worked at several different silversmiths at Florence. Following his war service in 1945, he worked at Biagioni's manufactory, and two years later set up his own business with Guglialmi Corti as 'Corti & Benvenuti' specializing in handmade frames, engraved boxes, and toilette services. In 1957, Osvaldo's son, Gianni joined the company, and following Osvaldo's death in 1970, Gianni Benvenuti became Guglialmo Corti's partner until the latter's retirement in 1985. In 1994, Massimiliano Benvenuti entered the business and was joined by another of Osvaldo's grandchildren, Alessandro Tinacci, in 1998. In 2008, the firm changed its name to 'Argenteria Osvaldo Benvenuti'.
