Provence Dinnerware Collection

The classic hand-painted pattern of these earthenware pieces is a longtime Williams-Sonoma favorite. Its 17th-century depiction of forests, castles and animals is based on traditional European folklore. Each piece is crafted at a small Portuguese pottery where ceramists rely on time-honored techniques to meticulously decorate it by hand. Hand-wash. Soup bowls, 1-qt. cap., 9 1/2" diam. set of two; Small platter, 19 1/4" x 13 1/2"; Large platter, 23" x 15 1/2" diam; Salad/dessert plates, 8" diam., set of four; Serving bowl, 5 1/4-qt. cap., 14 1/4" diam., 3" high; Salt keeper, 2-cup cap.; 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" x 7 3/4" high. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

I own the large platter and soup bowls from this set, and I love them. They are beautiful and the bowls provide plenty of space for a diner to cut meat (like in a stew), but still contain the juices. However, the bowls are very fragile. I was hand washing one after using it for the first time, it slipped out of my hands, feel 3 inches to the sink basin and shattered. However, this just makes me want to buy another one, because I really do love them. :)
Pros: Good for Entertaining, Color, Appearance, Versatile
Cons: High-Maintenance, Fragile

Classic Provence perfection & presentation
August 5, 2012
We received the large platter as a wedding gift and added the serving bowl ourselves. These hand painted beauties are unique with variances in individual pieces. They appear to be water based paints and as a result, look "smeared". That is the type of dinnerware this is.
It does seem very fragile and we are extra careful with handling, hand washing, and storage. The colors are amazing and the kids love the animation.
Overall, a stunning set to serve food on as it decorates and enhances food presentation. Highly recommend for use and/or a classic Provence display.
Pros: rich colors, presentation, artwork
