It is completely made and painted by hand by Mastro Carla in Deruta. When I say made by hand I mean that each piece is not just hand painted but it is individually hand crafted , It is a new item , in mint conditions - no chips, cracks or crazing, the white MARK ARE DO TO THE CAMERA FLASH. Those as all Mastro Carla. Pieces is extremely detailed and rich in colors, they certainly will become a conversation piece in ONE OF THE FINEST ITERPRETATION OF THIS PATTERN AVAILABLE. Deruta, Faenza and Florence all have a special Raffaellesco interpretation in their majolica tradition.
The name comes from Raphael, one of the great artists of the Italian Renaissance. The dragon represent a benevolent power who helps discovery and protects from adversaries and it is one of the grotesque motifs created by Raphael and his school when commissioned by the Pope to paint the Logge Vaticane. Pepper IS 17 CM TALL (6.8") and SALT 15 CM TALL (6"). This, at the moment, is the only way to guarantee that it is really made in Italy and not somewhere else. My pieces, of course, are all hand signed under glaze by the artist.
