Arte Italica honors the vision of its founder, Ann Skidmore, by offering the very best in quality and creative home decor design. Ann formed Arte Italica in 1997, as a response to her love of Italian history, culture, art and especially vintage pewter. Finding it difficult to acquire in the United States, she began importing this fine Italian pewter. Soon, she was designing and importing handcrafted ceramics, glass and bronze. In 2000, Ann and Arte Italica became the first to combine pewter and ceramic into beautiful and unique dinnerware and accessories.
Arte Italica continually strives to design and introduce innovative products that cannot be found elsewhere in the marketplace. Arte Italica takes great pride in being trendsetters in the industry. Arte Italica continues to make innovative designs, use innovative colors, and combine interesting material combinations.
Arte Italica's collections blend beautifully with one another in seemingly endless combinations. Not only do they blend effortlessly together, they also enhance other tableware collections. This versatility guarantees uniqueness and longevity.
