This ceramic plate has been individually hand painted by the de la Cal family in Toledo, Spain and is signed on the back by the artists. Holes on the back rim allow for hanging. The dinner plate measures approximately 11″ in diameter with a 2″ raised border. It is lead free and food safe. It can be placed in the dishwasher though hand washing is always recommended. As with all ceramics, these plates tend to get hot in the microwave, so please use care.
