Raffaellesco Ceramic Utensil Holder

Kitchen utensil holder with bags of personality and a story to tell.

It would work in any kitchen that requires a touch colour and large size to accommodate a larger number of kitchen utensils like ladles, spatulas, whisk, salad spoons and others.

Among the most popular and enduring Italian majolica patterns, the classic 'Raffaellesco' traces its origin to the 16th century and the graceful arabesques of Raphael's famous frescoes. The stylized dragon of the central motif was reputedly painted first by Raphael, a master painter and architect of the Italian High Renaissance.

It is believed that the dragon was a design element wishing seamen good luck and fair winds – hence the wind clouds coming from its mouth.

As a gift idea, it would work well for people who love cooking and have a lot of tools to store. Especially if he/she likes cooking Italian food.

Made in Italy, by experienced artisans, who specialise in maiolica ceramics.
