Deruta Galletto Blue Pencil Holder

This ceramic pencil holder was handcrafted and painted by the artists of Labor Deruta. It would be perfect for toothbrushes as well! 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 Pencil Holder is 4″ in height with a 2.5″ diameter.
