The Ramo d’Olivo large hand-painted serving bowl has a hand-painted Italian motif universally known – the olive branch, symbol of peace. A design element often seen in ceramics designed in the late 15th century, the hand-painted design on this serving bowl is simple and timeless. Leaves of blue meander around the rim of the white bowl with yellow tinted olives sprouting between. If you’ve ever been to Italy, you never forget the blue grey olive trees dotting the hills. We love the simplicity and versatility of this design and use it in both casual and formal tabletop settings.
Handmade in Italy, each serving bowl is created just as it would have been when this design originated– hand thrown on a potter’s wheel and glazed in the same colors available at that time.
A large matching olive branch platter is also available in this Italian serveware collection. A couple of images of the platter are shown alongside the featured serving bowl in the gallery photos.
