* HAND PAINTED FIMA DERUTA MAIOLICA CALLE VERDE GREEN ROOSTER OIL AND VINEGAR CRUETS WITH CADDY FROM ITALY
A very colorful hand painted Calle Verde green rooster oil and vinegar cruet set with carrying caddy. Maiolica hand painted 3-piect set from Deruta, Italy known for their pottery.
From Wikepedia & my thanks to them:
Deruta is a hill town and commune in the Province of Perugia in the Umbria region of central Italy. Long known as a center of refined maiolica manufacture, Deruta remains known for its ceramics, which are exported worldwide.
Cruets say in Itlaian Aceto (vinegar) & Olio (Olive oil). Corks can be purchased at craft stores if needed.
Cruets measure 4-5/8" high & 2" across the bottom & appx. 3-1/2" across the middle fat part. Caddy measures 8-1/2" across the bottom, appx 4" wide & 6-1/2" high. Marked on the bottom "Fima Deruta Italy".
They would be beautiful on your table next to the salad bowl when having an Italian dinner or cookout! Very colorful and you will get a lot of compliments on them!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
