on classic blue and white hand made tableware from Vietri. Topped with silhouettes of the pomegrante in a classic blue and white combination, Melagrana Blu inevitably makes a statement. Italian maestro artisan, Gianluca Fabbro, uses a unique sponging technique to handpaint the timeless design on each piece. Melagrana Blue pays homage to the pomegrate, representing prosperity and abundance. Perfect timing for Thanksgiving tablescapes. Handpainted on terra bianca in Veneto. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Great gift ideas — we’ll never tell you got it on sale.
