A Piece of Alentejo
Known for its vividly painted terracotta tiles and tableware, Portugal's pottery tradition goes back to the Middle Ages. Bring that cherished tradition to your table with this hand-painted pitcher. Artisans in the Alentejo region throw these terracotta pitchers on potters' wheels, and then fire them with a white primer glaze to create a blank canvas. Painters adept at the region's signature style then hand decorate the vessels with a vibrant still life of flowers and leaves, fired a second time to fix the composition. The festive, floral pitcher makes a delightful gift and brings a sunny touch of handcrafted charm to your serveware. Handmade in Portugal.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
