Orvieto Dinner Plate

Italian dinner plate hand-painted in a unique Orvieto (or Orvietano) pattern comes in red, green, and blue colours. Each plate is unique and even in the same set, the rooster will have slight characteristical variations.

It also comes with an interesting story to tell. Orvietano style comes from a small region in central Italy and it has not changed much since its creation in the Renaissance era. Essentially you are travelling to Italy and in time to experience traditional European craft that will enhance the dining experience for you, your family, and your dinner friends.

Price is per plate. This way you can buy just two to add more personality to your kitchen or go for ten if you are hosting large dinner gatherings.

Galletto or ‘Rooster’ also has a meaning. Italian motifs always use crowing rooster to display wishes for prosperity and well being.

Size: 11 inches / 28 cm.

More About Orvieto Town

Maiolica (tin glazed earthenware) has been produced in Orvieto since the 13th century. And its artisans were recognised as the master craftsmen (known as Vascellari) across Italy and beyond.

Walking around town today, aim for Pozzo della Cava, as here you can still find the furnace from the 15th century, and the ceramics factory that was used until the 16th century.

The Cathedral – Duomo di Orvieto, is hard to miss too. It stands above all the buildings in the city and is likely take your breath away when you get closer. Decorative tiles on it were made locally and are reflective of the "Orvieto style", unique to this region.
