Cware InstructionsStory

Italian maiolica is foodsafe serveware but may not be used for cooking. It may be washed in a dishwasher; we recommend using an energy-saver or low-heat dry cycle to avoid drastic changes in temperature. When storing mugs in a cupboard against an outside wall, we recommend you swish warm tap water in them before pouring boiling water directly into the cup; or put a spoon in the cup to absorb the heat. Crazing of the outer glaze sometimes occurs over time; this does not affect the foodsafe quality of the maiolica.

Care InstructionsStory

Inspired by frescoes painted by Raphael in the Vatican, the Raffaellesco pattern has been a popular subject of ceramic design in Umbria and Tuscany since the early 1600's. Our rendition is hand-painted with expert care by master artisans in Deruta, Italy, in yellows, greens, and rusts on a white background. Each piece is unique. The griffin is a mythical creature that is said to bring good fortune to seafaring people and those embarking on the voyage of marriage.
