Caleca Italian Hand-Painted Dinnerware
Caleca has been manufacturing quality ceramic products for more than 200 years. Caleca Italia has developed a low porosity, extra strong, but lighter ceramic body comparable to stoneware, vitreous and porcelain, rendering the Caleca products highly resistant to chipping and prolonged usage. Born from an antique tradition of over two-hundred years, and created by artists of diversified nationalities, the Caleca dinnerware collections are the fruit of a perfect fusion of tradition, good taste and technology.
Each piece is manufactured in Italy from a unique red clay found only in the region of the original Caleca factory. The pieces are then hand painted by skilled artisans. The special manufacturing process and high firing temperatures create dinnerware that is much more durable than typical European earthenware. Each piece receives a stamp ensuring its authenticity. With or without the official seal, the brightly saturated colors and whimsically fresh patterns are instantly recognizable as Caleca designs.
All pieces of Caleca dinnerware are dishwasher and microwave safe, lead and cadmium free, and oven safe to 400°F.
