DUKE OF GLOUCESTER OCTAGONAL PLATTER
... duke it out
The dinner service was originally made for William Henry, Duke of Gloucester, circa 1770. A medley of plump fruits in twenty colors set inside a Rococo rim of green with 22k gold flecks. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. 12.5"
Part of the "Merry Muscaria" collection. Platters are for more than just turkey! Splay a fruit salad to show off nature's beauty. Play with the proportions and plate long carrots, long beans, and bok choy. Lined up individual open wedges of lettuce to grab with Vintage Silver Large Sandwich Tongs would be an excellent use for this octagonal stunner. So would breadsticks, with a Vecchio Rice Bowl for herbaceous marina sauce.
