This heirloom quality platter will be passed along for generations to come! Each Ardmore Ceramic is a truly unique creation and that is certainly true of this magnificent platter.
Colourful African Mandrills and Parrots combine with bunches of plantain to create a whimsical portrayal of African Flora and Fauna.
The precisely detailed bunches of plantain at either end of the platter form convenient handles.
Sadly, the Africa Mandrill is considered to be a threatened species. The largest of all monkeys, they are shy and reclusive, living only in the rain forests of equatorial Africa. Their colourful faces make them easily identifiable.
This dish will provide an eclectic touch to your dining decor. Start a conversation about this unfortunately endangered species!
