I'll Have My Plate - blue pair

65.00

If you like witty, whimsical and quirky imagery, you'll love this mismatched, upcycled decorative plate pair!
 
I always used to discard damaged plates with some remorse but I have now found a way of giving them a new life by incorporating the defects into the design/story. I have found some fabulous plates like this that cant be sold but can be given a wonderful new lease of artistic life. 

In this case, chips on two gorgeous, blue and white vintage plates (the top one is marked B & L England and the bottom one, Alfred Meakin Bleu de Roi), were integrated into a design based on the theme of 'Have your cake and eat it' 

Whether a gift idea or home decor for you, this unique and quirky plate pair work brilliantly as a talking point when displayed on a wall.

(NB: FREE plate hangers and hooks are supplied with this set so that you can hang it as soon as you receive it)

The plates measure approximately 25 cms/9.75 inches .

The plates are really for decorative purposes - although they can be gently rinsed, in order to preserve the fragile designs, please do not soak, scrub or place in a microwave or dishwasher. 

The damage on both is obvious and the larger plate is mottled - all part and parcel of the concept. In addition, both plates have slight blemishes and fading in parts of the rim but I hope you will agree that these are true signs of having been pre loved and only add to their quirky character!

This is one of a series of plates that I have available -I am limited by the opportunity of finding damaged plates and they tend to fly off the shelf! 

Each plate I make is a one off - whilst I repeat the imagery, it is never on the same plate. Given this, you may be interested to see other plates currently available in the  damaged collection
