Deruta Galletto Green Antipastiera with Handle
The Galletto pattern is a modified version of green and white ceramics that came out of the Umbrian town of Orvieto in the 13th century. The original Galletto pattern was green and white in color. 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. This ceramic piece is customarily used for serving antipasti, and it was handcrafted and painted by the artists in Deruta, Italy.
The Galletto Green Antipastiera with Handle is 4″ in height and 10″ by 10″ in length and width.
