Deruta Galletto Green Butter Dish
The Galletto pattern is a modified version of green and white ceramics that came from the Umbrian town of Orvieto in the 13th century. In the 19th century, centuries after Deruta became the center of Umbrian ceramics, a rooster was added to the pattern. The leaves were also modernized. As well as being a lovely addition to the pattern, the rooster is said to bring good fortune. This ceramic butter dish was traditionally hand-painted by the artists Ceramiche Sberna in Deruta, Italy.
The Galletto Green Butter Dish is 4″ in height and 9” in length. The butter section on the tray is 4.5″ in length and 2.5″ in width. Measurements are approximate.
