This is a beautifully hand decorated Portuguese terracotta dish! A fabulous vintage dish especially if you are expecting to be entertaining large numbers!
When it is not being used for cooking and serving, it's also great on a table piled high with fruit or vegetables. In addition, it could be hung for decorative purposes via a sturdy, weight-bearing hook.
Decorated in a traditional Portuguese style featuring a bird, plants and a gorgeous stylised feather pattern border, the colour and glaze is wonderful. It is a large and substantial dish with some weight!
Dimensions: height 8cm, diameter 48cm by 41cm. Part glazed and hand decorated. Fits into larger ovens. There is one tiny minor graze to the glaze which does not detract from the overall look - see separate image. Please view all images which form part of description.
