Castellli ‘chicchera’ are special cups that were designed back in the 18th century to keep your hands warm as well as hold Italian hot thick chocolate and exotic drinks. When filled, this contemporary design shows the profile of Faustina who you’ll find on the tiled ceiling of the famous local church.
The design won first prize in the 2019 MIDEC competition for ceramics and blends a skillful re-interpretation of Castelli icons and portraiture and these famous cups that were used originally for ‘exotic’ drinks and sorbet.
Price includes cup and saucer
