Painted in Deruta, Italy in the Raffaellesco pattern. Named for the Renaissance painter Raffael, Raffaellesco is one of the most popular and enduring Italian ceramic designs. The central motif of the Raffaellesco pattern is a stylized dragon which was thought to bring good luck and fair wind to seagoing merchants. You will notice the puffs of wind exhaling from Raffaellesco's mouth. Our Raffaellesco collection is hand painted in a small family studio in Deruta, Umbria. This pattern complements many decorating styles from traditional to contemporary.

Size: 8" tall, 2.5" diameter

Because each piece of Poggi Bonsi Italian Ceramic Majolica is made one-at-a-time by hand, there may be slight variations in color and size, or differences in interpretation within the pattern. Italian ceramics are hand painted so freehand art and evidence of the artist's handling of the piece are expected. These are not imperfections, but rather part of the artisan charm of hand-crafted Italian Ceramics.
