A maestro whose work does not come up often yet whose jewelry can be exceptional in design and craftsmanship, Lico is listed but details of his life still elude us. I have had a few of his jewelry over the years and I can say that his repoussage is stunning and his creations boast eye-catching proportions. The clamper at hand is a known design for him – big, bold and beautiful with deeply incised repoussage, a strong sense of movement in the swirls and turns at center front and patina that accentuates the richness of well-aged silver. Truly splendid…
