Full Product Description


Full Product Description

In Italy, a very beautiful tradition surrounded the engagement of a young couple -- the bride and groom and their families exchanged precious boxes filled with confetti.  The young man would give his betrothed a gift such as a cup, bowl, or plate holding some type of sweet fruit or other delicacy, or confetti.  A woman's or man's profile was on the plate, along with either the name of the beloved, or a romantic phrase.  This plate bears the romantic promise, "With all my heart."  These display plates, from the artists of La Gioconda, exemplify productions found in Italian majolicas of the 15th and 16th centuries.  Plate measures 10 inches in diameter.
