The special feature is the Grandmother’s collection of vinaigrettes in the Chinese showcase. They are known locally as balsamini and were designed to contain sweet-smelling balsam, nearly all made in the 18th century. There are some silver buttons by local craftsmen from the same period and a very fine silver sponge box. Two of the three Durer engravings (the Madonnas) are by Hans Baldung Grien, and the head of Durer is from his own workshop. On the opposite wall is a family tree in photographs showing four generations of the de Piro family.
At the end of the corridor is a fan collection. Some are made of Maltese bobbin lace; there is a French 18th century one, and a Chinese fan from Canton.
