The artifacts from the Renaissance “Case
The Scavo Leone Collection products are manufactured to
express the simplicity of the everyday pottery used in
the Renaissance time.
Perhaps the most important feature of our
“Scavo Leone” collection is the unique “lion feet”
applied at the bottom of every product, a typical
feature that may be found in many middle age vessels
designed for the “Nobili” (Noble) upper class.
These specific products where inspired by
artifacts found in the renown “Case Patrizie”. These
large Villas were built with artistic style only in the
Renascence period between XVI and XVIII century, and
they are expressions of the styles in that particular
period. Usually built in remote areas in the province as
they were designed to give pleasure, leisure and most
specially rest to the upper class members.
The ring and the scroll motif around it shown in each
piece, is to recall the metal ring used outside these
buildings to tie the horses or the gondolas in Venice.
