Majolica Papero




The Majolica Papero feature a truly unique assortment of gorgeous replicas of hand painted vessels used in the renaissance era to store olive oil, wheat and wine.

The ''Papero'' (Duck) motif is among the oldest Tuscan Majolica designs and definitely one of the most sophisticated pattern we carry.

All items of our Antica Majolica collection are painstakingly hand painted with traditional designs of the best Tuscan tradition.
Nowadays, these exclusive 'renaissance-era' adornments offer an authentic Mediterranean look to interiors, patio, and garden areas. Great for either Indoor or Outdoor Use.

These Majolica pieces are true classic from Montelupo (Tuscany) and an Artistica’s exclusive, created using the now rare technique called 'Ingobbio'. Prior to first firing, a glaze obtained from a clay of different color is applied only on the exterior part of the object.
This ancient Tuscan process produces an authentic 'Old World' look, and adds significant body to the colors.
You can actually feel the consistent (almost raised) body of the painting when gently passing your hand over decorated parts.
Due to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this technique is now used by very few artisans, which makes these items very hard to find.
