Nestled in the heart of artistic fusion, this lovely blue and white porcelain platter is a testament to the seamless blend of tradition and contemporary elegance. Crafted with precision and adorned with a design inspired by traditional sailors’ tattoos, it carries the whispers of ancient voyages and maritime legends.

From the moment your eyes meet its delicate surface, you are drawn into a world where history meets craftsmanship. The under-glazed decorations, meticulously detailed, breathe life into the surface, creating a captivating narrative. The platter’s milky finish, a result of expert artistry, is complemented by a matt (no glaze) base, a testament to the careful firing process on a bed of sand in a traditional Chinese porcelain factory.

This masterpiece of artistry and heritage seamlessly marries East and West. Designed in the creative hub of Sweden, it embodies the spirit of global collaboration. The largest platter, a generous 40 cm in diameter, commands attention akin to a Roast Chicken size, making it a striking centrepiece for any occasion. Its medium counterpart, measuring 34 cm across, and the petite version at 20 cm, offer versatility that suits various culinary delights.
