I received a pretty cool dish for Christmas, it was a present from a friend who lives in France... It looks like a cake stand but it is made of grey steel with a white patina.
The first thing I thought when I opened the box was : "Wow, this is going to be fabulous to take pictures of my jewelry!"... (I can't help it!) And indeed, I think my new "Macadam" necklace and earrings with black lava and purple wool felt balls are really looking good with Le dish in the background : )
(There is also a charcoal grey and a teal blue version of these in my Etsy shop.)
I must say that this dish brings back a lot of childhood memories because its style and material make me think of Parisian galvanized steel fountains, shop displays and café chairs just like the Tolix "Marais" chair that has been on my wishlist for the longest time...
(I love this chair!)
