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, was individually handcrafted and painted by the artists in the traditional fashion in Deruta, where the Raffaellesco pattern first appeared in the late 16th century. These rooster pitchers are dishwasher safe, and they are safe to use for beverages. They also make a lovely vase!
