I have a pair these that I love. At first I thought they would be too large, but have realized they are just right to accent many outfits. I loved them so much I ordered a pair for a friend and she also loves them.

This carved platter is beautiful. I have it displayed on my dining table along with my condiment dishes. The detail is well done. My guests comment on how unique it is. I look forward to other pieces from this artist.
