A beauty in Umbria: Deruta Majolica Beads and ButtonsBy Giulia Manfredini On 10 June 2014 In Designs, Deruta By GPA

The Fuseruola, an antique Umbrian token of love in majolica from Deruta.
You find in this section several beads, buttons and thimbles, handmade and handpainted in Deruta for our Company, matching with our Deruta serie of designs, “Deruta by GPA” inspired by old majolica/pottery designs of Deruta art.

The Fuseruola is a little sphere used to balance the spindle when spinning.
Known from Etruscan and Roman times, between the 14th and 17th centuries, it was glazed and then decorated in coloured “scales”.
Its central area or band was then stamped with delicate well-wishing or virtuous designs, or the name of a girl, to whom the distaff and the spindle, equipped with its fuseruola, were presented as a pledge of love.
The town of Corciano, near Deruta, with the patronage of the Region of Umbria, held a competition to find the “Typical Umbrian Souvenir” which was won by “Le Antiche Fuseruole”, S. Angelo di Celle, Deruta, Italy. We advise you to pay a visit to Corciano and Deruta……… You’ll be enchanted….
A big thank to Mrs. Anna Lisa Piccioni, President of “Le Antiche Fuseruole” and “Academy of Deruta Work” who has created for us beautiful beads, buttons and sewing accessories enabling us to design our models in tune with the antique Deruta designs.
Each maiolica/pottery button and bead are unique since they are handmade and painted only for Giulia Punti Antichi.
For this reason your “Deruta embroidery” is going to be a unique piece of art.

WE WILL GIVE YOU INFORMATION ABOUT IT. https://www.puntiantichi.com/deruta-majolica-beads-and-buttons-the-fuseruola-an-antique-umbrian-token-of-love-in-majolica-from-deruta/
