This traditional hand-painted olive dish is the intersection of beauty and practicality. Three compartments of varying sizes connect to make one ideal item for serving olives as tapas, passing them around the dinner table or perching them on a side table at a party. With a larger nook for olives and two smaller spaces for tucking toothpicks and pits, this is the quintessential serving piece for great Spanish olives.
Not only incredibly useful, this decorative dish will also bring a bit of traditional Spain to your abode. Each piece is crafted by a talented group of artisans in El Puente del Arzobispo — a charming Spanish town known for making customary ceramic creations for thousands of years. We journeyed to El Puente on our quest to find the most beautiful ceramics of Spain and fell in love with the location and makers of these lovely and functional pieces of artisan pottery. The dishes reflect the town itself - quaint, traditional and unique. Imagine the ancient bridges and buildings intersected by medieval streets each time you use your olive dish.
The handcrafted nature of this item means that each piece is a bit distinct from the last. No two are completely alike, which is one of the qualities that make these pieces so prized. When you’re not tempting guests with tasty selections of olives, use these three connected bowls to decorate your kitchen with a little Spanish flair.
We do not recommend dishwasher use with these delicate handmade pieces. Due to the traditional way they are made, glazed at a moderate temperature, intense heat may crack the glaze.
