The Ginori Porcelain company, at Doccia, was founded in 1735 by Carlo Ginori. In 1896 the name of the business was changed to Richard – Ginori. It has remained the most important Italian porcelain factory ever since. In the 18th Century, the factory used the glaze to create a milk white surface which served as an effective background for a palette of strong painted colors. This process was unique among European porcelain manufacturers, and gave the Doccia porcelains a unique feel and look. This Ginori Doccia Italian Dish has flowers in pinks, oranges, yellows, blues, purples and greens forming a lovely design. With random leaves scattered around the plate and a scalloped edge, the workmanship is quite special and this piece is in perfect condition.
