This collection of patterns was started around 1865 in Milano, Italy. The collection changed name several times as the company changed hands over time. In 1897 it was under the company A. Nava & C. and the collection was named Il nuovo traforatore Italiano (The new Italian fretworker). Some time after the turn of the XXth century it was under Ettore Ferrari's company and the collection was named Il nuovo traforatore artistico (The new artistic fretworker).
The patterns in this collection reach stunning levels of sophistication and refinement. The beautiful designs, the subtle use of elegant shapes and proportions prove undoubtedly that the designers of these artworks were masters of the XIX century ornamentation techniques.
