Unknown Italian Maker (, - present)

Deruta, in central Italy, has been an important pottery center from medieval times to the present with its "golden era" spanning circa 1490 to 1550. It was probably the first Italian area to produce lustre of any kind, about 1500. Orange, yellow, and blue are dominant colors, often used in combination with iridescent yellow or pearly lustre.
