The charm of hand-painted Italian dinnerware

Add a Mediterranean touch to your table with these Italian-style dinnerware sets.

An ancient Italian proverb says: “Love, a cough, and smoke, are hard to hide”. Might we suggest adding: the charm of Italian ceramics!


Call it an obsession with tradition or an artsy way of life, but Italians are masters at creating ceramics that work like canvas for food. They even have a wide gamma of special dinnerware patterns and regional designs to choose from.


Bontempo’s history is a clear example of it. Bontempo Ceramics is a 4th generation family business from Abruzzo, Italy. Since 1862 they have produced handmade and hand-painted ceramics with traditional techniques and Italian motifs. Their designs reflect Italian country life and are wonderful, unique additions to any modern home.


What makes Cotempo’s ceramics unique is the bucolic Italian landscapes reflected in their pieces. They bring happiness to any table with their vibrant colors, eye-catching designs, and luxurious feel.
