Custom Pottery

Due to the historical consistency of heraldic design, we are now offering a more streamlined approach to special order "coat of arms" pottery. Remember, you MUST also send us an image or a good link to an image of the heraldry in question. Also, custom items are made-to-order, please allow time for the pottery to be made. When we receive your image, we will respond with a time estimate. Please email for quotes on large orders.  Images are examples only! For more examples of custom pottery, click here.

History & Documentation

Remember, you MUST also send us an image or a good link to an image of the design in question. Also, as these are custom made-to-order items, please also allow time for the pottery to be made: most often 1-2 months though it can be longer depending on the time of the year. When we receive your image, we will respond with an expected time estimate. All custom order purchases are final. All images on this page are examples only!

Many items in medieval times were marked with the heraldry of the owner, from clothing to jewelry and from dishes to castles. The coat of arms was a mark of status, lineage, and ownership--and can be compared to the use of logos and "My Name Is..." stickers in today's culture.

Italian Portrait Platter

Whether the face filled the entire plate or merely a central medallion, portrait plates were very popular in Italy, with examples just within our source files spanning from the 1400s to after 1640. While some were simply of "bella donnas" anonymous beautiful women, others were in truth portraits of individuals, and sometimes a couple--a wedding portrait often with the date of the wedding somewhere on the piece.

Unique & usable, safe for food and drink as well as the modern conveniences such as oven, dishwasher, and microwave. All the designs are drawn free-hand and hand-painted onto the hand-thrown pottery—no molds or stencils used—and our wares are designed sturdy, built to survive years of everyday use.
