Christmas White Cake Stand

Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro was a giant of nineteenth century Portuguese culture, and remains one of the nation's most influential artists to this day. With a broad range of work ranging from humorous drawing and caricatures to vibrant and innovative ceramics, Bordallo Pinheiro's creations represent an unsettling, ever-timely reality which is as relevant today as it was a century ago, and provide a view of the political, social, cultural and ideological terrain of his period. Bordallo Pinheiro began his ceramic production in 1884 at the Fabrica de Faiancas in Caldas, creating pieces of great technical, artistic and creative quality. His work included traditional azulejos (blue tiles), panels, pots, table centrepieces, vase busts, fountain basins, pitchers, plates, perfume bottles, gigantic animals and much more. This dazzling variety and prolific production earned him gold medals in numerous international exhibitions (Madrid, Antwerp, Paris and St. Louis). Despite the quantity produced, the quality of his work was never compromised. Today, over 130 years after the factory first opened, Bordallo Pinheiro pieces are still being produced to the exacting standards and in the dazzling style that the great man pioneered. Modern technologies and contemporary sensibilities have been adopted, adapted and assimilated to ensure that the pieces the factory produces remain at the cutting edge of style and technique. This product is microwaveable and dishwasher safe. Conventional oven not recommended.

Serveware is a great addition to your kitchen, helping you to do everything from mixing a salad to serving guests canapes in style, and many households wouldn't entertain the possibility of not owning a teapot. From cake stands stands to serving jugs, there are designs in all different styles and sizes for presenting, serving and pouring all types of food.

What types of serveware are available?
There are many different pieces of serveware that will aid in both everyday meals and entertaining at dinner parties. Most serveware sets should include serving dishes, platters, trays and utensils for food such as salads, pastas or appetisers. Pitchers and carafes are ideal for easily serving beverages, while a gravy jug is an essential component of the Sunday dinner table. Dipping bowls, cake stands and punch bowls are other pieces you might want for entertaining, and more options to showcase and serve your food include butter dishes, cream and sugar servers, and wine decanters.

What styles and materials of serveware should I consider?
Serveware styles and materials are quite limitless. Choose wooden pieces for an option that is both traditional and long-lasting; their classic styles will never go off-trend. Alternatively colourful plastic pieces can bring a sense of playfulness that offsets a contemporary kitchen. Wooden serving boards and bowls are ideal for bread, cheese and salads, and they look rustic and are durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use.

What specialty serveware might work for me?
Depending on your culinary expertise, you may want to consider additional serveware pieces to adequately stock your collection. If you’re keen on buffets, a warming tray will keep large amounts of food warm at gatherings. A tea and coffee set might be a nice complement to your breakfast table, while a chips and dip set could be perfect for your coffee table during a cocktail party. Other ideas are a fish platter to present seafood and a salad bowl for tossing and serving salads.

What size serveware should I purchase?
Serving dishes should be sized according to their purpose - ideally it's a good idea to keep some oversized serving trays and bowls for parties, and a set of smaller serving dishes for dips and nibbles. Storage may also be a factor, so there's merit in choosing a set of matching serving platters and dishes that will stack easily.
