In 1856, Giuseppe Sambonet, a Fine Arts graduate and the son of a nobleman from Vercelli, obtained his warrant as Master Goldsmith and established the company, Giuseppe Sambonet, depositing his seal bearing the initials “GS” at the Turin mint. At the beginning of the twentieth century his company was the Official Purveyor to many noble families, including the Duchess of Genoa and the Count of Turin.

Today, Sambonet is renowned for manufacturing flatware, hollowware and cookware that are defined by top-quality materials, unsurpassed beauty, innovation and attention to detail. Many great designers have created collections that consolidated and popularised the company’s focus on design.
