This ceramic bowl was hand-painted by the artists of Labor Deruta in Deruta, Umbria, Italy. It is perfect for cereal or soup, and it is dishwasher safe. The Galletto pattern is a modified version of ceramics that came out of the Umbrian town of Orvieto in the 13th century. In the 19th century, centuries after Deruta had become the center of Umbrian ceramics, a rooster was added to the pattern and the leaves were also modernized. As well as being a lovely addition to the pattern, the rooster is said to bring good fortune to the home.
It is approximately 2 3/4 inches deep.
