Manifattura Di Signa produced copies of antiquities and renaissance models in terracotta from the late 19th Century. The company had outlets in Florence, Rome and Turin and catered for wealthy patrons doing the Grand Tour of Italy. The manufactory was active at a time when remodelling English gardens, often in an Italian classical or renaissance style was particularly fashionable.
