Puiforcat Cercle D'Argent Dinner Plate
During the time of the nobility, porcelain dinner plates and cup handles were covered in a ring of pewter or encased in metallic armature. This reinforced porcelain tableware thus better resisted the trials and tribulations of travel and arrived at the destination undamaged. The Cercle D’Argent Dinner Plate blends the fragile delicacy of white porcelain with the sturdy nobility of sterling silver as a loving nod to this elegant custom. This dinnerware, by Puiforcat, is customizable upon request. Through a pattern to inscribe on the porcelain, a message to engrave on the metal, a gilded finish and more.
