MEDICI MAJOLICA: The Medici Majolica Collection takes its name from the ancient Florentine Medici family as it features the famous family crest depicting five red spheres and one blue, on a gold shield.
The Casa de 'Medici was a political dynasty, a banking family and then a royal house that began to acquire importance under Cosimo de' Medici in the Republic of Florence at the end of the 14th century.
The Medici coats of arms still decorate numerous 'palazzo' palaces throughout Florence and Tuscany indicating the Medici link or that it was financed with Medici money ...
Our collection of Medici Majolica features meticulously museum quality reproductions of original Tuscan designs from the 15th and 16th centuries.
Each piece of the exclusive collection of this DaFranz is made individually by hand in Montelupo Fiorentino, an important Tuscan center for ceramics since the Middle Ages. Its success is to be attributed to the natural abundance of clay in the surrounding area, mainly due to the frequent flooding of the Arno river.These majolica pieces are true classics created using the now rare technique called 'ingobbio', an ancient Tuscan process that produces an authentic 'old world' look, adding remarkable body to the colors.
You can actually feel the coherent (almost lifted) body of the painting when you gently swipe your hand over the decorated parts.
Due to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this technique is used by very few craftsmen today, which makes these items very difficult to find.All the items in our Antica Maiolica collection are carefully hand painted with traditional designs from the best Tuscan tradition.
Nowadays, these unique "Renaissance era" ornaments offer an authentic Mediterranean look to the interior, patio and garden areas. Great for both indoor and outdoor use.
