Charming 'Il Pavone' (peacok) plate, in blues and greens, by Cerasarda from Sardinia. The stylized bird is depicted using the sgraffito technique, whereby craftsmen scratch the clay to incorporate vibrant glazes. A very striking, hand-made piece. 'Signed' Cerasarda on the front and Cerasarda back stamp.

Cerasarda was founded by Prince Karim Aga Khan and established in Olbia in 1963 as “la Ceramica Della Costa Smeralda”. Since its inception, Cerasarda has distinguished itself for the exquisite work of local craftsmen whose vibrant enamel colors and refined decorations evoke the iconic landscape of Sardinia's Emerald Coast. Part of the Romani group since 2002, Cerasarda interprets the richness of Mediterranean culture and nature through a sophisticated and homogeneous aesthetic rendered with natural materials and a mix of traditional and innovative methods.
