Jacksons Home & Garden offers the finest in imported, hand-painted Italian dishware. Jacksons scours the Italian countryside searching for the most interesting Italian ceramic designs and patterns, and we proudly bring these handmade, one-of-a-kind ceramic delights to you! The ceramics we import are defined as Majolica. To be considered such, an item must be made of European red clay. After the item dries and is fired the first time, it is dipped in a white, chalky coating over which the design is painted entirely freehand with lead-free mineral glazes; it is then fired again to bring out the colors of the various minerals.
