Orvieto Mug

There is a mug and then there is an Orvieto mug. It is not something you just buy in a shop. Instead, it is artisan-made, and then custom painted using centuries-old traditional painting from the Renaissance era.

For any fans of Italy, this would be a nice way to spice up everyday objects in their life. The type of mug that you would reach over the choice of all the others.

This unique style comes from Orvieto town in central Italy. And it is only here that one can find such style and technique.

If you are considering this as a gift, it is useful to know the meaning of rooster in Italian folk motifs – it means wishes for well-being and prosperity.

Capacity: 10 oz / 295 ml.

It is advisable not to expose your products to sudden and drastic temperature changes to avoid cracking.

Orvieto creations are not recommended for use in the microwave.

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.
