The Raffaellesco pattern on this Pasta/Soup Bowl (Full Design) is, without a doubt, the best in Deruta, and possibly of all of Italy. The craftsmanship of these Italian Ceramics and hand-painted interpretation of this piece will be a distinctive Maiolica treasure heirloom.`
Raffaellesco - This is Biordi’s most appreciated pattern of the classic Italian dinnerware, ceramics and pottery. The stylized dragon, seen as the central motif, was reputedly painted in the 16th century by Raphael, the master painter and architect of the Italian High Renaissance. The Raffaellesco dragon has come to be known as a benevolent deity who bestows good luck and fair winds to seagoing merchants, thus the puffs of wind steaming from the dragon’s mouth.It is hailed as one of Deruta’s most challenging designs of any Maiolica out there, as its intricacy requires an unimaginably steady hand.
