This serving platter is part of the Anya Suzani collection, defined by a beautifully patterned motif that is inspired by textiles from Eurasia. The chic melamine platter is elegant enough for formal occasions, yet durable enough for casual alfresco affairs. Bongenre melamine tableware is designed by Jill Fenichell, an antique-porcelain and pottery dealer for 15 years, whose specialty was 18th-century English blue-and-white porcelain. Porcelain, however, did not reflect the reality of her lifestyle--living in Brooklyn with a husband who loves to put his feet on the coffee table and a son who inhales his food while goofing around with his friends. Bongenre allows her--and you--to enjoy the elegant patterns and colors of vintage porcelain along with the ease of casual living.
