Post Lot Text
Anna Baccelli designed jewellery from the 1930s to the late 1960s. Initially she shared a workshop in Piazza Carlo Alberto, Turin with her husband, already an accomplished goldsmith. She was inspired by botanical motifs and many of her creations use floral or foliate themes, another influence was the Gothic style.

After separating from her husband, she moved to the nearby Via Battisti and worked under the name of Orisa. Her fame spread through the rest of Italy and Europe and she enjoyed the patronage of the aristocracy and leading artists.
