Indeed, you can use this plate as a serving dish. I imagine it with raw veggies and dip, or even a cheese ball and crackers. Cookies or brownies (OK I'm getting hungry just writing this). The fact is, that you have about a 5 inch unjulating center which is glazed and ready for whatever you choose to put in it. Three Cavalier surround the edge of the plate, so you can't go wrong as a centerpiece with goodies for guests.
Alas, when finished serving, wash this one up and display it with your finest.... It's just beautiful!
Approximately 9-10" across.
This beautiful decorative plate It's about 9" across. I've used a celadon green as the base glaze, and washed it with a beautiful indigo blue on top. It is brilliant in color and I love love love that!
In general, I would say, display this on a plate stand, but it is stoneware, and food safe, so I guess if you wanted, there is no reason at all that you could not use it with food (as in cheese and crackers :-)... It would be pretty hard to eat a meal on this one!
