VINTAGE BULGAR TROYAN HEAVEN Originally, the color was applied via a bull's horn! Feathers would be employed to further enhance the design. Made in the ceramic capital of Bulgaria, Troyan, this decorative style is known internationally as the 'classic Bulgarian pottery'. It's magical imagery has been compared to peacocks and butterflies. Hand formed by men from red clay local to their work-shops, each piece of pottery is hand decorated by a woman with her own recognizable and unique style.
