Raffaellesco Collection is one of our most popular and enduring Italian majolica patterns. And such a colourful cup can add a lot of character to your morning coffee ritual.
The classic Raffaellesco traces its origin to the 16th century and the graceful arabesques of Raphael’s famous frescoes, but you do not need to be an art expert to appreciate it.
Especially considering that it has a great story behind it – the stylized dragon of the central motif was reputedly painted first by Raphael, a master painter and architect of the Italian High Renaissance.
Raffaellesco is a benevolent deity who bestows good luck and fair winds to seagoing merchants, thus the puffs of wind steaming from the dragon’s mouth.
It is dishwasher safe, but not recommended for use in the microwave.
