A Palace at My Plate

I stumbled across these clever architectural dinnerware sets recently, and thought I’d share them with you. While this may just look like an architectural model of an Italian villa to you, imageit’s actually six dinner plates, plus a serving bowl! dinner1

This is one in a set of clever pieces by Seletti, designed by Alessandro Zambelli, which also makes a tower of six small bowls and a serving dishimage

and a palace which turns into a coffee set, with creamer and sugar, as well as a large server.

You can mix and match, imageand create a small renaissance Italian town on your table.image

There are a number of pieces in this collection, which all resemble historic Italian villas, palaces and other buildings. image

If you don’t want to do the traditional dinner table setting with these, you can use them for other purposes. image

  1. I should share this post with my pottery class instructor. And please google civic literacy test and challenge your knowledge and report back your score if you dare. My score was 78.79. A glass of merlot perhaps is to blame.

  2. Fabulous and creative! I would want to display them all the time. Great gift for an architect or designer.

  3. New meaning to 'dinner on the town"!
