Synopsis

Dish The Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plate by Shax Riegler

The right dinner plate can elevate an ordinary meal into something special. Whether it's made of ceramic or porcelain, melamine or paper, a dish is a blank canvas that sets the stage for the food we eat. Who knows why we find the art of the dinner plate so appealing, but for long as we've been eating from a dish or plate, there have been people who collect and admire them. In Dish , author Shax Riegler examines centuries of dinner plates, from the ancient world through to the modern day. Organised thematically and presented with large photographs, each plate tells a story, which is further explained in the text and in extended captions. With sidebars to explore the storied manufacturers (meissen, Sevres, Wedgwood, Spode, and more) and a timeline to delineate the rich history, Riegler presents an exhibition of plates in a beautifully package that is sure to make the perfect gift.
