Funerary Monument of Giulio Salviati

Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey, England contains the grave of Antonio Salviati's son Giulio Salviati who was born in Naples in 1843 and died on March 4, 1898. Misidentified as Luigi Salviati by the New York Times, the master glass maker - whose father's accomplishments were mistakenly attributed to him by the paper - had committed suicide at the age of 55.

The four sided, obelisk-like base contains the Salviati company's trademark enamel mosaics. It was erected to Giulio by his widow Henriette.
