Italian Ceramics

Italian ceramics, pottery from Italy

"I am a big fan of Italian coffee, and was searching for a particular set of cups to serve it. I received a well packaged set of 6 cups and saucers in excellent condition. I was also surprised at how affordable they were. The Italian Shop came through for me and they will for you too!"
Jim V. (USA)

"I have just received the goods I ordered from The Italian Shop. The ceramics are so pretty. Everything came wrapped up very carefully and the delivery service was perfect with the goods arriving much quicker than I expected. I would certainly recommend The Italian Shop to others and hope to use their services myself again before too long. Very many thanks."
Nancy B. (Scotland)

Italian Ceramics

Italy has a long history in the production of high quality ceramics. The term comes from the Greek word 'keramos', meaning clay. The Etruscans were the first to produce ceramics in Italy with their 'Bucchero' technique. Then during the Renaissance, Tuscany and Umbria became famous for producing 'Maiolica' ceramics and in Sicily, the famous 'Baroque' tiles were produced. But, as with all things in Italy, each region has its own fascinating speciality that they consider to be the best of all!
