With a charming design of a spritely bird in the leaves and flowers, Arabesco is a widely popular ceramic pattern that comes from the town of Deruta in the Italian region of Umbria. Dating back to a legend about the Medici family in the 15th century in which crowing roosters alerted Giuliano de Medici to hired assassins approaching, rooster pitchers such as these are considered to be providers of good luck and fortune. Each ceramic rooster, or chicken, pitcher was individually handcrafted and painted by the artists in the traditional fashion inspired by Moorish design dating back to the 17th century. The Arabesco Blue Rooster Pitchers come in three sizes:
The Small Rooster Pitcher is 7" in height and can hold 14 oz.
The Medium Rooster Pitcher is 8.5" in height and can hold 32 oz.
The Large Rooster Pitcher is 10" in height and can hold 46 oz.
