Default Italian Ceramics from Deruta

Here is something new and fun from the FB Store. We have started importing Deruta Ceramics directly from the producer. We really enjoy this pattern, and have been using it for years. They are beautiful, but not so expensive that you put them on the shelf and never touch them. We use the serving pieces for vegetables, meats, pizza, etc. every day.

The pattern is called Raffaellesco, after the famous renaissance painter, who painted dragons in the borders of his paintings. Very nice.

We have limited our range to three bowls and one large serving platter, so we can always have inventory and keep our prices down. We have tried very hard to price these at a level where people will really use them. The producer is, of course, interested in developing sales in the U.S. -- so let's see where this goes.

You can order the ceramics here:

For more information on Deruta, take a look here:

Let me now what you think!

did I mention that I love big jugs ?

Nice FB addition James....

George, I can relate to that.

Jim, we have a house full of Valenciano ceramics. Great colors, bold patterns. And, in the days of Peseta, before the dollar crash, they used to be really inexpensive. We used to shop at the ceramics stores on the road between Javea and Denia (is that the A332?). We would stuff them into our luggage for the return trip, and only broke a few. :-)

James
