About the Artists: The Mannelli brothers created wonderful pieces from Travertine, a form of limestone found in several places in Europe. In Italy it is located in the heart of the Province of Siena, in the quaint village of Rapolano Terme. Not all pieces are signed or marked. If you see these pieces marked with 'Raymor', this was the label of the American importer of the Brothers Mannelli's pieces. Fratelli Mannelli also designed for Marble Art, from Marta in the Province of Viterbo in the region of Latium, Italy.
