Orvieto Rooster Salt And Pepper Cruet

Masterfully handcrafted and hand-painted in Deruta, Italy.

The Orvieto (or Orvietano) design is a very old and traditional pattern that originated during the Renaissance in the hill-top town of Orvieto Italy.
Truly one of Italy’s most unique and interesting cities, Orvieto 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.

This kitchenware comes in red, blue and green colours. This salt and pepper shaker can be combined with other pieces if you want a full kitchen set.

Cruet size:
In inches: width 5.5 x depth 2.5 x height 6.5 / Shaker size diameter 2 x height 4.5

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

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.
