This is the classic Raffaellesco dinner plate from Deruta.
Brightly patterned in blue and yellow, this pattern traces its lineage to the Renaissance Master Raphael.
Raphael was reputed as the first painter to use stylized dragons in his works, which feature so prominently in this design. In Raphael’s times, people believed that the Raffaello dragon was a benevolent deity that brought fair winds and luck to seagoing merchants.
RAFFAELLESCO Collection: Among the most popular and enduring Italian majolica patterns, the classic Raffaellesco traces its origin to 16th century, and the graceful arabesques of Raphael's famous frescoes.
The stylized dragon of the central motif was reputedly painted first by Raphael, a master painter and architect of the Italian High Renaissance.
Raffaellesco is a benevolent deity who bestows good luck and fair winds to seagoing merchants, thus the puffs of wind steaming from the dragons mouth.
