Napier Fontana collection 1956

Napier and The Fontana Sisters of Rome

In 1956, the Fontana Sisters of Rome selected this piece to complement a gown featured during their Italian fashion show. The Napier Co. also custom made additional pieces for event that did not become part of the Napier line. The iridescent crystals (Napier’s preferred terminology) are as brilliant today as they were 75 years ago. From The Napier Book
