  • This is a true Majolica Product:
    • Majolica reflects the expertise of the Italian Master Ceramic Artisans (Mastri-Ceramisti) who have spent the last five centuries perfecting the tin-glazed earthenware that is today called Majolica.  These products are created using the Ingobbio technique, the ancient Tuscan process that gives an authentic Old World look, while adding much greater body to the colors. 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.
    • Because of this finish, Majolica pieces are recommended for decorative purposes only (NOT Food Safe). However, if you want these pieces to be food safe, it is accomplished by removing the antiquing that is applied after firing.  If this antiquing finish is removed, the piece will be more shiny. Since this antiquing is applied only to the outside of this particular piece, it is already food safe.
