Have a Question about an Item's Color or Finish?
Due to the hand-crafted nature of our products, it is normal for dimensions, color and finish to vary from item to item.

Italian Pottery and Tuscan Home Decor
Hand-Painted Italian Pottery
Our collection of Italian Pottery is made entirely by hand in the Italian Tradition and fully glazed for lasting beauty. Each piece is Brand New, Never Used, and Imported Direct from Italy. All of our Italian Majolica is hand-painted and hand-crafted - no two pieces are the same. Variations include shape, colour depth, signatures and factory hallmark stamps, flicks of paint from the artist and tiny pin holes in the glaze. These are all characteristics of hand-made Italian pottery that make each piece special and unique. This does not deflect from the value of the pottery but rather adds to its charm. However, if you need additional pictures of an item to help with your purchase, please contact customer service. You can browse our entire collection of Italian Pottery by selecting the "Italian Ceramics" Category from the top menu on BellaSoleil.com or by clicking here.
Italian Pottery Care and Usage
Our tableware and serving pieces have lead-free glazes and are suitable for food. Majolica can go in the dishwasher but we recommend the fine china setting or delicate cycle. We don’t recommend putting items in the microwave or oven unless the item details indicate you may do so (e.g. a Casserole Dish or Lasagna Dish would be fine to put in a conventional oven).
Tuscan Home Decor
BellaSoleil.com stocks one of the largest selections of Tuscan & Mediterranean inspired home decor. Departments include Tuscan Home Decor,Tuscan Wall Decor,Tuscan Lamps & Lighting,Tuscan Furniture,Tuscan Rugs and our Spanish-Colonial San Miguel collection.

Partial Tracking Information or your Shipment
To speed delivery, some shippers may not location-scan all of their shipments. When shipping volume is high, packages are processed in bulk, and the first time a package is scanned may be upon arrival at a regional hub near the destination, or even when the package is delivered. If you don't see any tracking data for your shipment please do not be concerned. When you receive your Shipment Confirmation Email, your order has been shipped.

Note, the shipping companies (FedEx, UPS, USPS) recommend you contact them as soon as possible to better service your shipment.

Oversized Items - Truck Freight
Some items we sell are too large or too heavy to ship using a Small Parcel carrier (e.g. UPS or FedEx). In these cases, we will ship via truck freight at no additional cost to you. Truck freight is different than standard UPS or FedEx in that you will be contacted by the shipping carrier to schedule a delivery appointment. A signature is required for all truck freight deliveries; someone must be available during business hours (Monday-Friday 8:00AM to 5:00PM) to sign for the delivery. Note that the driver is only responsible to deliver to curbside or driveway although in some cases, may take the items off the truck to your door. The most important thing to remember about truck freight is that you must inspect the package and its contents at the time of delivery. If you detect any damage, or if there is any reason for you to be concerned about damage, please refuse delivery or write "Product Damaged" clearly on the sheet that they ask you to sign. If the driver needs to leave before you have a chance to thoroughly inspect the shipment, write "Subject to inspection for concealed damage" next to your signature on the bill of lading. This ensures that if there is any damage, it will be easy to take care of the problem. Be sure to notify us within 24 hours of delivery to report any damage. Please allow an additional 1-3 days for truck freight delivery. Truck Freight ships to the Continental US Only (please, no PO Boxes).
