Inspired by a very cool wall in some fabulous restaurant in an equally wonderful place that I don't remember and as a result will never go, none the less the wall stuck with me and gave me platter experiment No. 3. I really like it and use it all the time, serving plate size and display plate kinda thing. 12" across, porcelain and stoneware mix makes the platter durable and elegant. The platter has real gold on it so it's better to hand wash for longevity, but I know a few people that put these guys in the dishwasher without issue.
