Brooch - Carlo Giuliano

Carlo Giuliano was probably trained in the Castellani workshops in Rome before he accompanied Alessandro Castellani in about 1860 to London, where he established a manufactory at 13 Frith Street, Soho. He supplied a number of the leading retail jewellers in London, and in 1874 opened his own retail premises at 115 Piccadilly. His jewellery was much admired by the Pre-Raphaelite painters and their circle. He made jewels for Sir Edward Poynter (1836-1919) and Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898), and lent a jewel to Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912).
