Raffaellesco Biscotti Jar

Vintage or classical is up to a debate, but it is undeniably a truly unique Biscotti cookie jar.

Raffaellesco range has a bold style that would not blend into your kitchen, it would become a feature, a focal point. Bright yellow ceramic has a lot of vintage feel about it, but it might be even older than one think – the design elements can be traced back to the 16th century.

Every jar is hand-painted by Italian artisans, who specialise in Maiolica ceramics. Their skills are passed on from one generation to another, with parents often working alongside their grown-up children.

Biscotti, meaning ‘cookie’ in Italian – is proudly written at the front. Although it is clearly a place to keep treats from children or your naughty self, often it is used in more versatile ways – people store grains, pasta or even flour too.
