Dish sets, dinner plates - Pewter · Ceramic

Pewter and ceramic in the dish sets:
The real great industrial revolution in dinnerware took place in Protohistoric and Prehistoric times with the discovery of systems for preserving fire and therefore the need for a fireplace. The way food was cooked changed. Earthenware began to be used and this led to the development of the art of ceramics. In the third century b.C, red-hot stones were plunged into ceramic pots which yielded their heat to the water thereby making it boil and cooking the food. It was only with the discovery of metals that prehistoric woman was able to put pots directly over the fire. Between the tenth and eleventh centuries, the use of tin and pewter, materials that had been worked ever since the third century, in dinnerware, led to the production of everyday functional articles. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, wonderfully engraved and decorated pewter dinner sets made their appearance on the tabletops of the more well-to-do families. The tables of the rich were sumptuous and abounded in pewter and silver plates and trays. However, stoneware dishes, majolica plates and ceramic dinnerware became more and more popular.

Twenty-first century: the "Convivio" collection:
We wanted to combine the materials that had been so important for the evolution of dinner sets in Europe and the world into a single product . The idea was to make a perfect match between the two materials without using any kind of adhesive at all. We worked hard to ensure that the pewter bands around the ceramic plates and trays were positioned flush with the ceramic rims as though they were continuations of the rims themselves. Due to the fact that by nature the diameters of ceramic plates can never be exactly equal, the bands are adapted by hand for each item in order to ensure maximum adhesion. The "Convivio" collection is made from dishwasher proof "ironstone ceramics". The pewter rims satisfy all EEC and USA regulations governing containers for alimentary use.
