Padoan Fund
The lover discovered
Art piece by Meissen
The lover discovered

In 2001, Renato Padoan donated to the Querini Foundation a bequest from his parents, Ada Morandi and Romano Padoan, antiquarians whose "Giuseppe Dominici" shop was one of the most visited in Venice by collectors and art amateurs. The collection includes pieces in porcelain, majolica, silver, bronze, enamel, crystal and glass.

The porcelain collection displays examples from the most important Italian and European factories of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Meissen's productions are widely represented and include some rare pieces such as the precious sculptural group, “L'amante scoperto.”

The collection features porcelain dating from the eighteenth century, with items of Parisian manufacture such as the Darte Brothers and the Dagoty Brothers, and others crafted in the factories of Berlin and Gotha and the Schlaggenwald factory in Vienna.

Notably, the collection is endowed with a particularly elegant piece: the Bohemian crystal glass dated 1730-40, made in double-welded glass with an interior painting depicting a deer hunt. Rounding off the collection are 15 enamel cigarette cases from the eighteenth century.
