Special attention is given to the decoration of each piece. The fine miniature patterns represent colorful floral scenes in which fowl and fawns are featured along with other various details of centennial life of the period. These faience pieces from Portugal are a popular favorite with discriminating buyers. The pieces are recreated and adapted to our demanding lifestyle, using traditional methods. Each item is a potter's own artistic creation, expressed with a passion for excellence and signed by the artist. Dishwasher and microwave safe. FDA approved.
