“and put upon it spring water” (Numbers 19:17)
Judaism has always held a place of honor for water. Before every religious ceremony, we wash or immerse our bodies in spring water to purify ourselves. The Bellagio Decorated Pitcher combines the splendor of the tradition with art and design. Hazorfim’s master silversmiths were inspired by the beautiful Italian village of Bellagio which nests on the shores of Lake Como; creating a pitcher of pure art made from high-quality sterling silver. The piece is adorned with opulent decorations which allude to the Lombard aristocracy’s houses that dot the lake’s shoreline and reflect in its waters. The result is a rare and impressive object of beauty.
Pieces from the Bellagio Collection are handcrafted from pure silver using traditional hand-craft techniques. The collection gets its name from the ancient Italian village of Bellagio, on the shores of Lake Como. The collection draws its inspiration from the beautiful scenery surrounding the lake; the mountains reflected in the water and the estates built by Lombard aristocrats which surround it. Each pure silver piece in the Bellagio Collection is enlivened with delicate hand-crafted decorations.
