RENAISSANCE 8 - SALAD PLATE: 9" (22cm) Diameter.

Renaissance 8 Colors: Mono: Clay Green.

The acanthus leaf is a recurring motif in the tradiitional Renaissance design created for the Medicii family of Florence. This motif is widely used for decorative pieces as well as table and kitchen ware.

Choice of different color combinations makes this motif astonishingly versatile. The acanthus leaf is often combined with the peacock which symbolizes pride, majesty and immortality.

This Renaissance design unites three different elements: The leaf design, which appears in a narrow band on plates and most other forms; A combination of stylized leafs and flowers often appears as center medallions on bigger plates, bowls and platters; as well as an wide band, called rich Renaissance (or 'rinascimento a fiaschetti') on decorated plates with a very broad rim.

This Dinnerware pattern is hand painted in Radda (Chianti.)
