The item is new and in excellent unused condition with beautiful color. The plate measures 9 3/4" x 8" and is slightly oval in shape. The item is hand decorated. As a result, no two pieces are exactly alike. They each have their own personality with differences in the color, trim, and quantity / pattern of brown speckles, etc. Some of the plates have white or lighter colored spots mixed in with the terracotta and/or the brown trim. The unevenness of the color adds to the individuality of the piece. We have items with different manufacturer backstamps in this pattern. Please contact us if you have a preference. Look at the photos for details. If you would like more dishes than we currently have listed, please contact us. We are re-stocking on a regular basis and may be able to accommodate your request.
The Performance Craft Collection has exceptional durability. Alumina (a non-metallic ceramic substance) has been applied during the manufacturing process to increase the strength of the dishes making them resistant to chippage and breakage. These dishes are strong enough to hold up to heavy use in a restaurant, yet stunning enough to have in your home.
All Steelite dishes have three tiny rough spots on the underside from the manufacturing process. The piece is supported during the glazing process on three small, triangular cross-section refractory pins. After firing, a tiny fragment of this material remains in the glaze until removed by a grinding process. The major benefit of supporting the piece in this manner is that there is no need for the foot of the item to be unglazed. This eliminates one of the major causes of wear which occurs when dishes slide against each other during stacking.
Oven safe note from Steelite website: "All products are perfectly safe to use in conventional ovens. Temperatures of up to 300°C should not pose a problem, given proper attention to handling. The important point to bear in mind is that, in common with most other ceramics, tableware items should not be subjected to sudden, very large, uneven temperature reversals (i.e. heating or cooling)."
