One hundred and sixty years ago the RICCI family artisans established their Guild House, Ricci Argentieri, in Alessandria, a small northern town near Milan. Since 1840, Ricci Argentieri (also known as Ricci Silversmiths) has been one of the most respected and renowned silversmiths in all of Europe. Ricci’s rich tradition of quality craftsmanship continues today in the USA. Distributed by Godinger International, Ricci is still one of the most highly-acclaimed silversmiths in the world.
Today, Ricci’s sterling factory is still located in Padova, Italy, while our plate and stainless factories are located throughout the Far East. Each of our factories is state of the art, with our flatware and hollowware being produced to the most exacting standards. The highest quality, weight, balance and detail are apparent in every flatware piece.
First designed in the 18th Century, Ascot embodies a refined combination of timeless simplicity, historical tradition, formal elegance and aristocratic style.
