    Frascarolo: Pierino Frascarolo (1928 – 1976) was born in Milan, Italy. Beginning his career in jewelry as an apprentice with the Fratelli Lunati Company, Frascarolo then went on to found his own jewelry business with Aldo Lenti. During the 1960s, Frascarolo became well known for his animal creations in enamel and gold. Frascarolo and Lenti eventually parted ways and Frascarolo went on to form Frascarolo & Co. in New York City with Adriano Gugliada.
