Imagine how lovely this charming round basketweave tray will look when it is filled with a variety chips and a refreshing dip. The handpainted seashells and trim will make this one of your favorite trays. This product comes from the finest Italian artisans. It meets all requirements of the FDA and is intended for serving food. Variations in wear can result from differences in the temperature at which ceramics are fired, and also from variations in the clay, or "earth." We recommend avoiding the heat setting on dishwashers and find that hand washing works best for the chip-and-dip. We advise against soaking in the sink or dramatic swings in temperature, such as going from very hot to very cold. The microwave is not recommended. This product has been manufactured to the highest specifications to ensure durability and, with normal handling, should give you many years of enjoyment. This serving piece measures 12" round.
