Tropical Dessert Plate Bird Of Paradise

Tropical Dessert Plate Bird Of Paradise

Description

The tropical dessert plate with Bird of Paradise design is a stunning way to serve desserts this summer. The deep green plate makes a great canvas for pale desserts like cheesecake or panna cotta, while fresh fruits such as strawberries and mangoes really pop.

The tropical dessert plate is from the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. It is hand-painted in a rich green glaze, with the outlines of tropical leaves picked out in a darker glaze. The exotic blooms of Bird of Paradise are painted in a vibrant orange and purple hues.

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.
