Poetry Plates


From the website:




Fine bone china plates with gold lustre edging and blue text.

The large 10-inch plate features a love poem written from the plate to you.

It reads "I love the way you look at me, and the way you use your knife. I love the way you eat your food, you give meaning to my life."

The medium 8-inch plate reads "I am nothing but a simple plate, porcelain skin painted gold and blue. I am not a poet, just a dish, but I'll leave that judgement up to you."

The small 6-inch side plate reads "A little bit on the side."

The texts are written in a romantic handwritten style of a old love letter complete with dips of ink and imperfections. Available in in the following sizes:

  • Small 6" (gold band with blue poetry)
  • Medium 8" (gold band with blue poetry)
  • Large 10" (gold band with blue poetry)

These plates can also be customised with a special message on the rear of the plate.

Due to the gold lustre edging, repeated dishwasher use is not recommended.

I like 1) the poem by Marianne, 2) the style of calligraphy, 3) the colors (blue, white, and gold), and 4) the inscriptions on the plates.

I dislike the illiteracy. There is only one 'e' in judgment.

O! vessel made of porcelain,
Fine craft to put a morsel in,

How couldst thou know the rapt delight
I take in china blue and white?

A bowl that may at lunchtime brim
With thoughts poesic on its rim.

My heart enthralled each suppertime
By common viands graced with rhyme.

Alas, my ode to thee is terse
For having gone from bad to verse.
