Vietri Rosso Vecchio Mug (Set of 2)
Vietri Rosso Vecchio Mug. With its crackled glaze, Rosso Vecchio has us seeing red - the Italian color of life, love and passion!
Translation: aged red.
Handmade of terra cotta in Tuscany.
In the 1300's, peasants used rustic glazes on their hand-thrown pottery that separated during firing, exposing the terra cotta on the edges of the pieces. VIETRI reproduces these edges on Rosso Vecchio using clear glazes.
Part of the Cucina Fresca Family of Dinnerware.
Due to its red glaze, Rosso Vecchio has a slightly crackled patina that adds to the character of each piece.
Dishwasher safe. Microwavable. 4.25"H. 12-oz.
