"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)

Antipasti Dish - 'Fruit Harvest (Blue)'

The Mediterranean lifestyle is centred around long, leisurely, family lunches in the sunshine. Our Italian ceramic tableware, hand-painted in traditional styles, perfectly recreates that lifestyle in any setting.

Anyone with an Italian heritage will have fond memories of 'Nonna', cooking over a wood stove. Our range of hand-painted ceramic kitchenware, including plates and bowls, hand-made spoon rests and decorated storage jars, bring back fond memories of that bygone age.

Our authentic, hand-painted Italian ceramics will enhance the decor of any home or provide the perfect gift of family or friends.

Italian Ceramics

The word 'Ceramics' comes from the Greek 'Keramos'. It was first produced in Italy by the Etruscans, using a technique called 'Bucchero'. Later, Tuscany and Umbria became famous for the 'Maiolica' ceramics they produced and Sicily, for the 'Baroque' style. Like everything in Italy, each region has its own unique contribution that the resident consider to be best of all!
