Puiforcat Cercle D'Argent Dessert Plate
The French nobility used porcelain plates that had a ring of pewter as protection. Thus reinforcing the porcelain tableware and keeping it undamaged when withstanding the trials and tribulations of travel. As a loving nod to this elegant custom, The Cercle D’Argent Dessert Plate blends the fragile delicacy of white porcelain with the sturdy nobility of sterling silver. The white limoges porcelain that makes up this dessert plate is enhanced by a solid ring of 930/1000 sterling silver. A pattern to inscribe on the porcelain, a message to engrave on the metal, a gilded finish and more: every piece in the collection is customizable upon request.

The Cercle D’Orfèvre collection blends the fragile delicacy of white porcelain with the nobility of sterling silver. These two features are a hint from the past when fine porcelain was bordered and cup handles were encased in metal armature.
