Montelupo Rosso




Museum quality majolica reproduction from Tuscany
Hand painted with dramatic, intriguing and sophisticated Renaissance-inspired designs, these true masterpieces are delicately created to retain the finest characteristics of Tuscan Majolica.

We have recently redesigned these items, previously available only a blue color tone, using tones of the renown Rosso di Montelupo (Montelupo's Red)
that derives its name from the mysterious red pigment employed in its decoration since the medieval era.

Montelupo Fiorentino is the center of the production of Florentine majolica, located just on the outskirts of Florence and the world known Chianti region.
Montelupo is situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Empoli, and has been an important center for manufacturing ceramics since medieval times.
Its success can be credited to the natural abundance of clay in the surrounding area, primarily due to frequent flooding of the Arno River, and second, the role Florentine merchants historically played in trading Montelupo's majolica, or hand-painted terra-cotta, throughout Europe during the Renaissance.
