    Founded by Nicola Giustiniani circa 1760, this Neapolitan firm's most successful period was in the early 19th century under the direction of Nicola's grandson, Biagio. Although a variety of wares were produced, copies of Antique vases and the use of antique forms and decoration as exemplified by this lot were the high point of its production. The firm closed shortly after 1885.
