Exquisitely hand painted by experienced Artists hands .
These table top items can add homey European flavor to any decor as they feature classic Deruta designs with an array of colors perfectly in line with the current fashion color palette.
Since official documents do establish that Deruta pottery and Deruta ceramics has been produced since the XIII century, we have reasons to believe that the beginning of such an activity has to be established at least one century earlier.
Anyway, at the end of the XIII century, Deruta had produced so many ceramics and pottery that it could pay the charges imposed to the city by Perugia in vases instead of money.

At the end of the XIV century, Deruta had for that reason hold a position of regional producer of pottery, ceramics and majolica and was, so to say, exporting. In fact, according to evidences, as early as in 1358 Deruta had exported more than one thousand vases in ceramics to Assisi, homeland of Saint Francesco, place where the need for pottery articles for the table and ceramic souvenirs for the pilgrims come to visit the tomb of the Saint was high.

  • Product Care for Dinnerware and Tabletop products.
    The crazing effect - With repeated use, earthenware products have a tendency to "craze" (forming minuscule lines in the glazing). The crazing is the nature of earthenware, and has no significant effect on the ceramics and sometimes it is a much sought after effect.

    Thermal Shock and cracking - Avoid sudden temperature changes - A thermal shock is the fracturing effect that occurs when ceramic objects are rapidly either heated or cooled and it may crack any earthenware plate.
  • The beauty of imperfection - Because each piece of Majolica and Ceramic is individually crafted, you will notice slight variations in color and size and occasionally you will note paint smudges, fingerprints and looseness of lids.
    These variances should not be considered as imperfections, but as evidence of fine, hand-crafted work.
