What is “Pietra Dura”.
It is an Inlaying technique usually associated with workshops in Florence, Italy. This is used to describe sculptural or decorative of hard stones to decorate furniture, cameos, vases and panels with various stones such as Malachite, Lapis Lazuli etc.

Pietra Dura is an Italian phrase that means hard stone. This is usually refers to the technique of creating intricate inlaid pictures from shaped colored stones. The stones used are usually silicates, including agates, alabaster, amethyst, jade jasper, lapis lazuli, malachite, onyx and topaz. The Craft developed in the antiquity originally consisted of shaping stone with small saws wires and other metal instruments and adding them to decorative objects such as vases or small sculpture. The art was revised during the Renaissance by Italian craftsmen and the first hard stone workshop was established by the Medici family in Florence in 1558. The art was also practices at the courts of Pales, Madrid, Prague, Paris. From the late 16th century the colorful stone were arranged on furniture’s landscape and flower scenes.

Indian inlay work is not three dimensional but more flat. The Mughal adaptations have ensured that the European birds have been replaced by the Indian kingfisher, myna and re-breasted parakeet.

The Art is decline after Mughals and around mid 19th century there were probably a few craftsmen specializing in this work.
