Palermo "Black rim" includes saucer
These Painted-Rim cups and saucers are Ancap's newest addition to their classic Palermo series. The coloring on this series is paint applied by pasting brush around the rim of the cup and saucer. The cups are then kiln fired hot enough for the paint to be fully incorporated into the glaze of the cup, resulting in a smooth finish that is dishwasher safe. In opting to go with paint over a decal, Ancap has been able to keep the colour clear and vibrant. The black on white contrat creates a sophisticated and elegant look.
