Bear Plate

Origin: Portugal
SKU: DC0129
Size: 24cm


The bear plate brings the wild woodland straight to your table. Use to serve a stack of glistening, honey-roasted parsnips or perhaps smoked salmon canapes at an autumn or winter dinner party.

The bear plate is made by the highly collectable Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. It’s part of their historic series, which invites you to journey through the forests in search of the same animals as our hunter-gatherer ancestors.

Every dish is lovingly hand-painted, for realistic looking leaves and animals. The hand-painted nature of Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics means that no two pieces are ever exactly alike.

The Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro, was set up in 1884. Brothers Raphael and Feliciano Bordallo Pinheiro started the venture, and many of the pieces today are still made to Raphael’s designs. In only twenty-one years, Bordallo Pinheiro’s bold, artistic ceramics gained international recognition. Raphael took inspiration from the flora and fauna around his home town of Caldas, as well as drawing on ideas from the Renaissance and from the Art Nouveau & Naturalism movements.
