Ubaldo Grazia Dinner Plate Deruta VFG (Verdi Fondo Giallo) 28cm
Item SKU# IGZ-1-VFG104
Deruta Verde Fondo Giallo (Deruta green on yellow background) features a new twist on the traditional stylized wheat shaft design for which Deruta is so well-known: striking in soft green against a rich golden yellow, with red flowers and a cobalt border. This design was popular in Deruta in the 16th century and was used for everything fro dinnerware to decorative tiles. In the 1990's, a friend brought Ubaldo Grazia tile, found in a ruined country chapel, bearing the polychrome design "Dvfg." Grazia put the pattern back into production and it became an immediate success. It was carried by Neiman Marcus for many years. Here, in the full-size dinnerplate (28 cm). Handmade in Italy.
