MAJOLICA CORNUCOPIA Collection - Luxury Tuscan Classic Masterpieces of Art. The cornucopia is a symbol of food and abundance dating back to the 5th century BC also known as the harvest cone. Three masterpieces that truly reflect the expertise of the Italian “Mastri-Ceramisti”, who have spent the last five centuries perfecting the tin-glazed earthenware that is today called Majolica. These beautifully executed products are true classics from Montelupo (Tuscany) and an Artistica’s exclusive.
These ''Prima Classe'' Majolica masterpieces were created using the now rare technique called “Ingobbio”, the ancient Tuscan process that gives such an authentic “Old World” look, while adding much greater body to the colors. In the ''Ingobbio'' pieces you can actually feel the consistent (almost raised) body of the painting when gently passing your hand over the 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.
