Dishes stacked to the roof...

Mr. Peacock is swooning over these modular porcelain Italian “Palace” tableware pieces by Seletti. They would compliment my dish collection nicely, and you may already know I like dishes that stack!

Each Florentine-inspired “building” is comprised of six individual pieces, plus a serving dish as the roof.

Even the interior of each dish has “architectural” detailing.

The clever Palace collection includes 4 “buildings”
• a dinner plate building (each plate is 8.6” x 8.6” x 1.1”),
• a dessert/fruit bowl building (each bowl is 6” x 6” x .8” ),
• a small bowl building (each bowl is 4.3” x 4.3’ x 2”),
• a soup dish building (each dish is 7” x 7” x 1.6”).

I immediately thought of Piero Fornasetti when I first saw the Palace dishes. A Fornasetti tea set would nicely compliment Seletti’s modular tableware pieces.

These beech wood cutlery sets are packaged in a printed brown paper bag and would look great with these dishes…or for a picnic.

The Palace tableware collection would look chic displayed on this red Ming console.


The table is set…now what’s for dinner?

Absolutely brilliant! Certainly spruces up a gret table with lots of panache!

These are modeled after palaces in Genoa, Italy actually. I've been inside them, and you can buy them in the gift shops.

Wow, I would say that they are pieces of art. Excellent; funny, functional and nice to look at. Love it!

Normally, they come in black or brown Handbag detachable shoulder strap. These bags are not accessories. Vintage leather satchel bags for men are more of a necessity.
