Enter To Win A Deruta Ceramic Platter For The Holidays!
One of the perks of living six months a year in Umbria is that Deruta, the city of ceramics, is just a few miles down the road from us, and we own a LOT of Deruta ceramics. When Rupert of DerutaImports.com contacted me and offered this gorgeous Deruta ceramic platter as a prize for a contest giveaway I was thrilled to accept. This platter would be a great addition to your holiday table, or a special holiday gift for a talented cook in your family.
Maiolica, is the name given to the style of glazed, decorated pottery that is still is produced in many Italian towns, including Faenza, Orvieto, Castelli, and Sicily’s Caltagirone. But true maiolica devotees ultimately seek out Deruta, where 250 factories still produce the colorful ceramic wares shipped worldwide. I honestly haven’t counted the number of pieces of Italian ceramics we now own, both in Umbria as well as our home back in North America, but I do know we treasure each piece from the large colorful outdoor pots, to the tiny, exquisitely hand painted espresso cups and I know that the lucky winner of this platter from DerutaImports.com will treasure it as well.
Prize Description: “Ricco Blue 12″ Round Platter from Deruta
The Ricco Blue pattern is an elaborately hand-painted version of the very famous Ricco Deruta pattern, but with a more prominently blue background.
It is lead-free and can be used as tableware or decoration. This platter is very flat and makes an excellent cake plate. Retail Price: $128

We go the day after Thanksgiving and cut down a live tree, and then come back and put it up and decorate it. Over the years the grandchildren are getting older and they love to climb the latter to do the top. We have a 14 ft. ceiling so it is a really big tree. Everyone brings food and it just gets the holidays off to a good start.
Congratulations Ann! You have 72 hours to contact me.
