Ornato

Home/Ornato

The majority of the pieces in this collection are from Tuscany and Umbria. These regions of Italy are known throughout the world for their production of exquisite, handmade pottery. This collection was put together with a decorator’s eye, and is intended to add rich accents to both the home and the garden. Prominent in Tuscan and Umbrian ceramics are the rich blues, yellows and greens of the Renaissance. Ornato is largely made up of large decorative platters and urns. The urns typically range in size from 11” to 23” tall, though we do have some that are larger.

Our Della Robbias are made in Firenze (Florence) and are modeled after the highly sought-after style that Luca della Robbia made famous.
