MASO DI BARTOLOMMEO
(b. 1406, Capannole, d. ca. 1456, Dalmatia)

Railings

1447
Bronze
Santissima Annunziata, Florence

Two account-books, which Maso di Bartolommeo kept between 1447 and 1452, record many of his smaller decorative commissions from important Florentine patrons. For Piero de'Medici he made a pair of candlesticks and two gilded bronze eagles for the Cappella del Crocefisso in San Miniato al Monte and the bronze railings (1447) around the miraculous Annunciation in Santissima Annunziata.
