Antica Majolica Caffaggiolo
The Caffaggiolo Group

Exclusive Museum Quality Reproductions from 16th century original Tuscany's designs.

Oak leaves surrounded by arabesque floral designs mark the character of this pattern, which traces its origins to 1506, and the town of Caffaggiolo, a renowned center of Tuscan potting. Located near Florence, Caffaggiolo was then under the patronage of the Medici family, whose arms and mottoes appear on some of the Caffaggiolo wares. The influence of Florentine masters, particularly Botticelli and Donatello, is seen in earlier works.

Boldly painted in strong colors to reflect Florence's individual status, these pieces depict religious and classical subjects, as well as scenes of pageantry, triumphs, shields of arms, and trophies. "Peacock-feather" ornaments were also used. Rich blue, lemon yellow, orange, green and a dark cherry red are typical color themes. The best work was done between 1506 and 1526 and these pieces are genuine reproductions of those original masterpieces!
