Arte Italica Chianti Italian DinnerwareThe Chianti Collection from Arte Italica has the wonderful look and feel of exquisite, old world, handcrafted pottery. There is no mass production, and each piece is crafted by an Italian artisan one piece at a time. The lovely, rich green and rust hues remind one of Tuscany, and will make any table look stunning. Constructed using the same time honored techniques that have been passed down through the generations, Arte Italica celebrates the art, history, and culture of Italy. The Chianti Collection is made of ceramic, and is not only microwave safe, but also dishwasher safe when using the low-heat, air dry setting, and using only non-abrasive detergents. Made in Italy.
