About Rooster Dinnerware

The tradition of rooster dinnerware dates back to the Renaissance. The Medicis, a powerful Florentine family, sponsored a dinner for local peasants. At night, when everyone was sleeping, assassins approached the house to murder the Medicis in their sleep. However, the roosters in the farm awoke and started making noise. The assassins were caught and the Medicis decided to honor the roosters who saved them by commissioning a series of pitchers with 'rooster' designs.For centuries, peasants throughout Italy gave each other these so-called rooster pitchers to ward off bad luck. After a while, the rooster design itself became iconic of good luck, and ceramic-makers branched out and developed lots of rooster products. Italian ceramic companies produce many variations on the rooster theme, and you can now get glassware, dinnerware, and other ceramics emblazoned with the good luck rooster.Consider, for instance the 16-piece rooster dinnerware set, which includes four dinner plates, salad plates, mugs, and bowls. This dinnerware set is safe for the dishwasher, and you can also put it in the microwave. Another dinnerware set features roosters in raised relief on top of lids. These family dinnerware accessories are perfect for keeping out pests, and they look great on display, as well.Some imported rooster dinnerware sets must be hand washed. Depending on the artisan who paints the rooster design, you may have to clean your ceramics with special agents, so be sure to read any care instructions that are included. Some rooster dinnerware is relatively unadorned, and some sets include ornate depictions of red flowers and scalloped borders. Rooster sets make enchanting housewarming gifts and wedding presents.
