MAJOLICA LEONE ROSSO Collection. The central motif of our all new Majolica Leone features the renown 'Leone di Montelupo' (The Montelupos Lion) that, surrounded by its heraldic stemma, has been the 'emblema' of the 'Montelupo Fiorentino' area where the original Tuscan Majolica are manufactured since he XV Century.
Montelupo Fiorentino is located just on the outskirts of Florence and the world known Chianti region. This beautifully executed product was created using the Ingobbio technique, the ancient Tuscan process that gives such an authentic Old World look, while adding much greater body to the colors. 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. Hand-made by master artisans from Tuscany.
