Brolli Blue Carnation

It has been described as polychromatic stylized Carnation (Garofano) exotically set in the midst of a garden that appears caught between the world of the cultivated and the wild. The Garofano is one of the world’s most popular designs created for dinnerware. It is produced today by many factories throughout the globe with only slight variations in the design. It was first created by the workshop of Count Ferniani of Faena in 1750. Dinnerware of this type has become closely associated with the city and almost all potteries in the area produce dinnerware in the Garofano design. ~ Walter Del Pellegrino
