This is Biordi's most appreciated pattern of classic Italian dinnerware. The stylized dragon, seen as the central motif, was reputedly painted in the 16th century by Raphael, the master painted and architect of the Italian High Renaissance. The Raffaellesco dragon has come to be known as a benevolent deity who bestows good luck and fair winds to seagoing merchants, thus the puffs of wind steaming from the dragon's mouth. It is hailed as one of Deruta's most challenging designs, and its intricacy requires an unimaginably steady hand.
