The majority of our products are hand crafted and hand painted by local Artisans in and around a small town on the Amalfi coast called Vietri Sul Mare and are exclusively crafted and hand painted for us here in Sorrento, as such it is perfectly normal with Italian ceramics (where no ‘mass production’ is involved) to find minor blemishes, slight flaws or imperfections and some paint ‘spotting’ to the surfaces of the ceramics – this is what makes Italian ceramics so interesting and distinct from other ceramic production around the world!.  We ask that you bear this in mind and acknowledge/accept this fact when ordering products from our website.  It is true that, “The imperfection is of the man, the perfection is of the machine”.

All equipment/accessories used in our photo images are for display purposes only and not included in the sale of merchandise.

If you have any concerns about the colour accuracy of some of our photo images please do not hesitate to contact us and we will try to help address those concerns.  It is worth noting though, some of the issues which can affect the accuracy of how a photo image is displayed on your PC’s Display Monitor.  


Images created on an uncalibrated monitor become inconsistent


Not all monitors are built the same, slight changes between manufacturers and models account for slight inaccuracies in shade and hue and so a particular shade of orange (for example) could be inconsistent across different screens.

Many screens (especially the older CRT monitors) change color over the years and even as they warm up over the  course of a day.

People browse the web from many different locations and in many different lighting conditions. The effect of overhead lights and the amount and color of natural light all affect the appearance of color on the screen.

If you are worried about colour, we suggest try tilting your monitor forward/backwards or changing the lighting conditions to see if that gives you a different view of the colour image – otherwise just contact us and we will try and help!
