About the De Rosa Collection
The 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. Although the process has changed somewhat over the years the elegance and sophistication of the De Rosa Collection figurines has been secure.
Each piece in the De Rosa Collection is a unique piece of fine ceramic, first hand carved by talented artisans, then bold enamel coloring is applied, again by hand, with a firing after each application. The figurines are then finished with a lustrous 24k gold and/or platinum trim.
