ORVIETO RED ROOSTER: Butter Dish with Cover
This is a very old and traditional pattern that originated during the Renaissance era in the hill-top town of Orvieto Italy.
Truly one of Italy's most unique and interesting cities, Orvieto built on a volcanic plateau, has a charming medieval character, mainly due to its celebrated Cathedral, a gem of Gothic architecture that took more than 100 years to build.
The 'Galletto' (Rooster) pattern's main motif is a crowing rooster that symbolizes good wishes for blessings, prosperity and well-being.
Hand painted and fully hand made in Deruta Italy.
