Cour de Ferme Oval Plate
Cour de Ferme, or farmer's garden. The design of these plates pay homage to the vintage serving pieces of rural France. While large enough to function as a passing plate for veggies or other, it'll easily double as a single serving dinner or generously portioned lunch plate. There's a nice depth for 'saucy' fare.
Made of earthenware clay, plates can periodically be machine-washed, but hand-washing is suggested. They should thoroughly dry between use. Please note that earthenware can be more fragile than other types of clay. These plates are not chip-proof or impact-proof and over time, their surfaces will show wear. Expect variations in glaze.
Since 1950 Marumitsu has focused on functional ceramic-wares employing local potters who use both traditional and modern techniques. The potters hand is evident here especially in the application of glazes. All pieces exhibit varying caramel-ish areas along the fluted edges. This intentional 'burnt' detail is completely random. Some pieces have more, some have less.
