Let’s Dish, Portuguese Style, Shall We?

Two items from George in the Crestwood Shops are an enticing international combo for home decor.

We found this marvelous unglazed Barro Negro Dish at George in the Crestwood Shops, known for its exquisitely edited inventory. This particular dish is shaped like the traditional roof tiles of its Portuguese homeland. Handsome and practical? Sim, sim sim.

Ideal for oven and gas-top use, 100 percent lead free and—bonus—you can bake and serve in the same dish. Connie Beall at George opines that asparagus, fennel or hot artichoke dip would look amazing in this piece. The collection ranges from $15 for a salt-and-pepper set to $115 for a lidded casserole.

This example is shown with porcelain figs ($90 to $100 each) from Birmingham, England, which are cast from nature and hand painted.
