Sambonet was born at the end of 700, when Giuseppe Sambonet nobleman from Vercelli, excellent goldsmith and silversmith, was commissioned to restore precious sacred objects kept in the cathedral of Vercelli. In 1856 his son Joseph, a graduate of the Fine Arts, receives the patent of Master Goldsmith and May 15 founded the company Giuseppe Sambonet which will become a symbol of prestige. In 1938, Sambonet is the first that starts production of stainless steel cutlery in Italy and Europe and to develop the technique of silvering the steel, becoming the undisputed protagonist of the "modern table." In 1932 it creates the first system-wide industry in Italy, in which a line is produced in sterling silver. Since the '60s, designers of prestige, such as Roberto Sambonet and Anna Castelli Ferrieri, have created innovative models capable of raising even more Sambonet's image on the market: some of them like the "Fish kettle", or trays of the Elite "Line 50 "are now on display at the MoMA in New York. In April 2000 the company acquired the Beard, a Swiss company, which has centuries-old experience, international reputation and recognized quality in the most prestigious hotels and restaurants in the world.
