Sicilian Aperitivo Ceramic Olive Bowl
This Aperitivo Ceramic Olive Bowl is handmade in Sicily utilizing ancient techniques used to make pottery for storing food. The bowl features a “splatter” motif, a type of decoration found on olive jars at the end of the 18th century. According to Italian lore, green and blue colors were considered deterrents to keep insects away, hence their use in the coloring of dishes for food storage.
Use this 4.7” diameter ceramic bowl for serving olives, dips, salsa, sundried tomatoes, chips and more during your aperitivo time—the traditional Italian ritual of serving cocktails or wine with light snacks in the early evening, before dinner.
