This ceramic butter dish was handcrafted and painted by the artists in the traditional fashion by Labor Deruta. The Galletto pattern is a modified version of a pattern 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.
The Galletto Blue Butter Dish is 4" in height and 9" in length.
