Poterie Digoin Berry Dish & Saucer

A simple stoneware draining dish for washing berries or salad fruits and vegetables, finished with  a clear glaze to the upper side, with a dish to catch residual water. Hand made since 1875 by Poterie Digoin, in the northern Loire valley, an area rich in clay and silt mineral deposits, but as importantly at a major junction in the French canal network, whose distribution allowed the nascent pottery to quickly establish itself at the heart of the French kitchen. The dish is about 21cm diameter and 4cm overall height, the plate about 19cm  diameter.

£45.00 (Ex Tax:£37.50)
