The “Raffaellesco” pattern was inspired by Raphael’s 16th century frescoes in the Vatican palace. It is said that the central motif of this pattern, the dragon, symbolizes a benevolent deity who brought good luck to sailors of the time. The sea creature supposedly rescued sailors trapped in a dead calm by blowing on the trapped ship’s sails. Today, it is commonly believed that having a piece of Raffaellesco in your home brings blessings and good luck.
The Italian hillside town of Deruta is known throughout the world for its spectacular pottery. For more than six centuries, Deruta craftspeople have produced and exported ceramics. Our collection of vases, plates, platters and more, are the same classic designs that have made Deruta so vastly popular, with contemporary variations as seen in the Fresco collections.
