Made entirely by hand in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, this oval, high-sided platter from Bertozzi is made of Limoges porcelain, considered the finest in the world. Its unique mix of kaolin, feldspar and quartz allows it to be fired at extremely high temperatures for durability and a luminous glaze associated with royal china. The inside of this platter is glazed and hand-painted using a century-old secret recipe from founder Luigi Bertozzi. The paint recipe mixes flour, vinegar, and rusted iron to create a distinguished palette that cannot be replicated. The exterior of this platter is unglazed for an understated, slightly textured contrast that showcases the mineral-rich stones it is made from. As this piece is completely unique, slight variations in shape and colour are part of its charm. It is dishwasher-safe.
Why we love it
‘This piece reflects light beautifully, thanks to a mix of Bertozzi’s singular colours and the natural lustre of Limoges porcelain. The hand-painted interior looks almost like silk, with every careful brushstroke visible.’
