Vietri Old St. Nick For Christmas

 Do you know we have carried the Vietri dishes for over 10 years now in the store? 
We all use it in our homes daily and love it. The Old St. Nick pattern is a charming set to use and give for Christmas this year....
What could be more whimsical than the individual portraits of Old St. Nick? Each Santa is created from Maestro Alessandro Taddei's childhood memories of stories his mother read to him.
Made of terra bianca, each portrait is painted directly on the fired surface in Tuscany so that each stroke is seen in detail. This chocolate pot and latte mugs would be great little Christmas gifts....mix with some of our freshly ground coffee or hot chocolate. These cute little red boxes full of straw make the perfect gift! The square santa plates above are perfect for cookies....fill with cookies and place one of our cute cast iron mice on top a thoughtful and wonderful gift!
Also mixed in with this display is the beautiful red and chocolate dishes by Vietri and crema serving bowls and platters...Come check them out they are pretty cute for the holidays!
