Oh boy! Guess what was waiting for me when I got home from work today?!? If you guessed “Hand made dinnerware from Florence” you win the Kewpie Doll!
What a thrill to see it all actually made and in our kitchen. I am beyond psyched! We weren’t expecting it for another week or so – this was really a wonderful surprise.
The design is called Oranges and Grapes. The piece above is the salad / pasta bowl. I can see some noodles filling that thing.
The square dinner plate. Very similar to the large salad / pasta bowl above. It’s almost 12″ across. Unbelievably awesome!
This is the pasta plate. Same Orange and Grape design, but with a different layout.
The salad plate, again, has the Oranges and Grapes, but a different border.
And a square dessert plate. How cool is that? Same design, another border.
The soup bowl is simply awesome. The design is painted up the side of the bowl and there’s a painted band on the outside.
And, finally, the platter.
I am really, really pleased with everything, from the craftsmanship to the indestructible way they were packed and shipped. There’s a few more pieces I want. Methinks I’m going to have to start saving my pennies, again.
