We are proud to be the UK distributors of Saturno, and as you will see, the website showcases some of the manufacturing capability, and the amazing skill of the artisans at Saturno SRL.

Saturno is a family run business, like our own, based in Badia Al Pino, in the heart of Tuscany. They make all items in house in their laboratory, creating handmade articles which are loved throughout the world.

Saturno’s craftsmanship is of the very highest order, possibly the only still in existence which is capable of producing this outstanding quality of work.

Assembling the silver figurine

Incredible care and attention has been invested in the manufacturing of these pieces. From studying the live object in its natural habitat, to sculpting a mould, which is both beautiful in proportion and includes precise detailing which helps to make these items the market leader in its field.

Every product has been cast and then hand polished to a beautiful finish. Many pieces are then enamelled by highly skilled painters, creating overlapping colours which are then repeatedly glazed and baked at a high temperature, to create both a visually stunning and hardwearing surface.

The final process for all the items is the lacquering process, which will prevent the article from becoming tarnished over time. This removes the need for cleaning. All Saturno pieces sold by us have been fully hallmarked at a UK Assay Office, guaranteeing the quality and fineness of every sterling silver piece.
