This ceramic bowl was handcrafted and painted by the artists of Labor Deruta. It is perfect for a single serving, whether it be of soup, pasta, or salad. The Galletto pattern comes with a history; it is a 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 because of a legend about the Medici family in the 15th century in which crowing roosters alerted Giuliano de Medici about the approach of hired assassins.
The Galletto Blue 8 inch Bowl is a little less than 3 inches in height.
