About the De Rosa CollectionThe De Rosa family has been intimately involved with ceramics, since 1945 when the founder, Jorge De Rosa attended the Argentinian National School of Ceramic Design. These South American ceramic works of art have been decorating homes and offices world wide since that time. Although the process has changed somewhat over the years the elegance and sophistication of the De Rosa Collection figurines has been secure. From the vibrant blue dolphin sculptures to the sleek black panther figurines, each piece in the De Rosa Collection is a unique piece of fine ceramic. Their artists take inspiration from surrealist art and South American artists like Dali, Picasso, and Miro to create these stunning ceramic wildlife figurines. Each figurine is first hand carved by talented artisans. Bold enamel coloring is then applied, again by hand, with a firing of each piece with each new shade applied. The figurines are then finished with a lustrous 24k gold or platinum trim giving each whimsical wildlife figurine its singular signature of elegance. Because of this exceptional process no two pieces from the De Rosa Collection will be exactly alike.
