This line can be appropriate for formal occasions and/or everyday use. It’s one of the thinnest scaled patterns we have, and therefore one of the lightest. Bellezza is microwave and dishwasher safe, and has above-average chip resiliency. This style adopts a French manufacturing technique that involves glazing all over, enchancing the chip resilency. Many pieces of the Bellezza line are stand-alone gifts that are truly classified as heirlooms for their artistry.
Incanto by VIETRI
Check out the crisp and rich finish here: this is accomplished by the rubbed white glaze over ‘terra marrone’ (brown clay) to achieve a thick, milky affect with an elegant gloss. Because of this finish and its delicate appearance, Incanto is perfect for formal occasions. This line is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe, and has average chip resiliency. This is our thickest scaled pattern which makes the weight heavier. With beautiful heirloom features, Incanto is our #1 seller for wedding gifts at La Bella Vita.
