During the 18th century, Italian pottery experienced a remarkable period of artistic expression influenced by Rococo and Baroque styles. One notable family of makers during this time was the Ginori family, known for their production of porcelain in Doccia. Their creations were characteriaed by intricate designs, ornate motifs, and a vibrant palette of colors that reflected the opulence of the era.

In the 19th century, Italian pottery witnessed a revival of interest in Renaissance and Classical styles. One of the prominent figures of this period was Gio Ponti, the visionary designer who founded the Richard-Ginori factory in 1923. Ponti’s modernist approach blended traditional techniques with innovative designs, resulting in captivating pieces that showcased bold forms, geometric patterns, and a harmonious fusion of colours.
