Tuscan Classic Masterpieces of Art.
cornucopia is a symbol of food and abundance dating back
to the 5th century BC also known as the harvest cone.
Three masterpieces that truly reflect the expertise of
the Italian “Mastri-Ceramisti”, who have spent the last
five centuries perfecting the tin-glazed earthenware
that is today called Majolica.
These beautifully executed products are true classics
from Montelupo (Tuscany) and an Artistica’s exclusive.
These ''Prima Classe'' Majolica masterpieces were created
using the now rare technique called “Ingobbio”, the
ancient Tuscan process that gives such an authentic “Old
World” look, while adding much greater body to the
colors. In the ''Ingobbio'' pieces you can actually feel
the consistent (almost raised) body of the painting when
gently passing your hand over the decorated parts. Due
to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this
technique is now used by very few artisans, which makes
these items very hard to find.
