TACCO FERRO DI PRUA 22K

Made By  Peroni Firenze

The idea of this coin case / jewellery case / small case  comes from Venetian daily life. The typical Venetian  symbol Ferro de prua  which the ornament on the front of Gondola boat. It can be made from brass, stainless steel, or aluminium. It serves as decoration and as counterweight for the gondolier standing near the stern. We collaborated with Peroni artisans to using the special traditional technique to creating the cardholder without of stitching.  Typical Venetian symbol stamp in 22k real gold powder.

Every detail of the gondola has its own symbolism. The iron prow-head of the gondola, called “fero da prorà” or “dolfin”, is needed to balance the weight of the gondolier at the stern and has an “Ƨ” shape symbolic of the twists in the Canal Grande. Under the main blade there is a kind of comb with six teeth or prongs (“rebbi”) pointing forward standing for the six districts or sestieri ” of Venice. A kind of tooth juts out backwards toward the centre of the gondola symbolises the island of Giudecca. The curved top signifies the Doge’s cap. The semi-circular break between the curved top and the six teeth is said to represent the Rialto Bridge. Sometimes three friezes can be seen in-between the six prongs, indicating the three main islands of the city: Murano, Burano and Torcello.

This is such a amazing piece of art!!
