We have visited Beconcini 3 different times on trips to San Gimignano. Unbelievably, I had never purchased in the store. Upon arriving home from our last visit, I went onto the website, and there-on the first page-was a large display plate that was perfect for my kitchen! So, I ordered it by website/email correspondence with the (already reviewed as fabulous)... More

While visiting San Grimignano we saw this beautiful shop. Unfortunately we never got back to make a purchase. When we arrived back in the U.S. I contacted them. Fabio was fantastic helping me make my purchase. The items arrived today in perfect condition, the packaging was unbelievable. Of course all items were beautiful!

Beconcini is a little shop that you MUST visit if you are interested in quality, hand-made ceramics with geometric patterns at unbeatable prices. We had a hard time finding this little gem in San Gimignano at Piazza L Pecori but it was well worth the search. We bought a large oval platter and four small plates each with a different... More

Nice store and wonderful stuff. Everything they have is handmade there, in the wonderful town of San Gimignano. The attentions to detail is phenomenal. We bought a Christmas ornament and a nativity piece (fantastic!). The owner was so friendly and professional.

Found beautiful cabinet and door pulls each a unique scene and so reasonably priced after small bargaining. Owner bubble wrapped each piece for me to take home! So glad I found momentos for home that were practical and fit in my already overloaded suitcase! Lol.

We are glad you appreciate the packaging of the products. We make strong parcel when we ship and also when the customer decide to carry we put a lot of bubble wrap. Is terrible to think the customer get home and realize our products broken. Never must happen! We wait again you in our shop this season: is 50 year... More

Wonderful ceramics for everyone, our only regret is that we didnt purchase more for gifts! You must stop by this shop if you are in S. Gimignano. The prices are so much inexpensive than the other stores and much finer quality.
