Ceramic Salad Servers & Dish (Set)

R230.00

Believe it or not today’s salad servers and veggie dish aren’t actually a set – or rather they weren’t when I bought them. Looking at how similar they are in design though, I’d say that there’s probably a very good chance that they were made at the same time, in the same factory. When I originally spotted the salad servers, I thought they were likely Scandinavian – they remind me a lot of Rörstrand ceramics – so when I found the matching dish a few weeks later, I was surprised to see a Balboa foil sticker on its base – to the best of my knowledge Balboa is an Italian make!

So after all these years it seems I still have a lot to learn! But regardless of whether they’re Italian or Swedish, they’re still very, very cool! I’ve always loved the idea of ceramic servers, and you don’t get much cooler than those line drawings – at least in my opinion, that is!

P.S. There is some wear to the pattern (see photos), but no damage to the pottery or glaze
