Discover Sicilian enchantment in every pour with the bummulo malandrino.

Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Sicilian heritage with the bummulo malandrino, fondly referred to as 'bummulu malandrino' in the local dialect. This ceramic marvel, playfully dubbed the 'tricksy jug', is not merely a vessel; it's a celebration of Sicilian artistry and a nod to ancient jugs once gracing tables with wine and water.

A veritable feast for the eyes, this pitcher's sky blue and yellow hues set the stage for festive dinners, igniting curiosity and evoking astonishment with every pour. It's not just an object, but a journey into Sicilian lore waiting to unfold.

Hailing from the epoch of Muslim domination in Sicily (827 - 1091 CE), the bummulo malandrino stands out with its distinctive closed-top design and side spout. But, the true enchantment lies in its filling ritual: turned upside-down and filled through its base. And thanks to its masterfully crafted internal cone shape, not a droplet betrays its confinement once righted.

Each piece is made by hand and hand-painted, therefore each piece is a one-of-a-kind item and will vary slightly from those shown here.
