About
This Dragon figure Cama Deruta Hand painted Italian pitcher is unusual because of the double spout design as well as the dragon figure. The use of the dragon on this item is a head nod of the artist to the 16th Century dragon protective figural pitchers. The most prosperous time for Deruta was the 16th century, during which the Raffaellesco design became a popular figure in pottery. Raffaellesco is the namesake of one of the Great Masters, Raphael (full name Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino), a painter and architect. His frescos featured a creature which came to be known as a “grottesque”, a design that combines human, animal, and botanical forms. The Raffaellesco we know today is a benevolent deity, bestowing good luck and fair winds to seagoing merchants (as evidenced by the curlicue puffs of air that you can see he’s exhaling!) and landlubbers alike. Double pourers always remind me of Greek gods and biblical figures and so this pitcher brings forth images of beautiful maidens at a well, a pleasant and calming aesthetic. Though easy to use and functional, it doesn't appear that this item has ever been used thus, and it is in as new condition. At its widest, this pitcher is 10” and it is 7.5” tall, making this the perfect water urn for your table of 3-6 people. less
