Ricco Deruta Ricco Deruta has its roots in the Renaissance, but there is a distinctly Art Nouveau feel to its flowers and branches. Based on the intricate and predominantly primary colored designs, it is not surprising that the word ricco means “rich” in Italian. The Grazia factory developed the Ricco Deruta style from historical sources, and it may indeed date back to designs conceived by the great artist Raphael.
Frutta Frutta designs feature bold fruit on a white background set off with bright green leaves. This style has been popular for hundreds of years, and was mentioned in Victorian English Magazines as being very popular collectibles even then. The whimsical hand painted Frutta patterns remain popular to this very day.
