Rosso Antico

Named for (and not to be confused with) the deep red Grecian marble once used by the ancient Romans, this ceramic ware was made from 1775 to about 1920. It is found in tableware and decorative pieces, usually with basalt reliefs in the Greek and Egyptian style, with enameled decorations.
