The engraving on our Model 175 is the result of the cooperation between our company and the artists with whom we have worked over the years for the realization of many exquisite engraving. The 175 project features the leaves of the Acanthus Spinosus plant with their thorny margins and deep incisions that run through them and meet at the leaf midrib, all executed in low relief. Examples of this beautiful decorative theme can be found on Corinthians Capitals in Ancient Greek architecture; one of the oldest examples is in the Temple of Apollo Epicurius in the Peloponnese region.
The engraving pattern on the model 175 is executed in low relief. The contrast of the carved background is increased using the “dot” technique, while leaves are given more volume through “shading”.
The engraving pattern is characterized by many exquisite details and refinements that are reminiscent of the theme that inspired it. The number 175 is given the importance it deserves in an oval on the trigger guard and top lever. The Zoli Family Coat of Arms prevails on the action back and is surrounded by two banners, one featuring the company name and one with the Anniversary date. The Zoli Coat of Arms gives this magnificent Model the necessary “backing” it needs to achieve the delicate and crucial task it has been assigned. It also reinforces its artistic and monetary value over time.
