Arte Italica is the vision of Ann Skidmore who formed Arte Italica in 1997, in response to her love of Italian history and fine Italian pewter. She combined pewter and ceramic into beautiful and unique dinnerware. The Tuscan Collection is the best seller.
Ann Marie's takes a certain delight in exposing our customers to the amazing craftsmanship found in Italy, and nowhere is that more evident than in the breathtaking ceramic tableware, glassware and pewter design offered by Arte Italica. Recognized by Italian art purists and ceramic collectors alike, one of the benchmarks of Arte Italica is the seamless manner in which their many different lines complement each other, making it easy to mix and match pieces from various lines together.
Browse through some of the individual lines, and you'll fall in love with the Southern regions of Italy immediately. The Amorini (translation: Cupid) line of handcrafted ceramics boasts incredibly detailed hand-painted floral patterns with the line's trademark cherub. The Campagna line, named after a small village in the Southern province of Salermo, features pristine white porcelain with handcrafted whimsical pewter animal accents. The Medici collection, with its classic fleur de lis emblems and distinctive uneven edges, not only makes for an amazing collection, but unique conversation pieces. The pewter and glass collections from Arte Italica combine traditional European disciplines to form a singularly artistic taste of Italy, and there's even a Perfect Weddings collection that combines Amorini porcelain with a highly refined selection of pewter and stainless steel flatware.
At Ann Marie's, we're proud to offer a diverse and classic selection of Arte Italica, including a number of retired collectors' pieces.
