Gasparo Miseroni (ca. 1518–1573) established the period’s foremost workshop for precious stone vessels in Milan. The outstanding value of the stones and the skill required to cut them – mastered only by a handful of virtuoso artists – made them some of the most highly prized objects in princely Kunstkammer collections of the 16th and 17th centuries. Emperor Maximilian owned over 60 such works; extant records show that some of them are the work of Gasparo Miseroni.
