Perfect for Picnics: Mottahedeh’s tin plates

Recently, Meg over at Pigtown*Design mentioned using pretty tin plates
rather than disposables for picnics. When I came across these, I was charmed.

Turkish garden pattern tin plates by Mottahedeh. Here.

Love this pattern

This is a very cruel post. I have no money in the account to spare and yet I deeply desire a dozen of these.

Love drawn like a magnet, just as I was to tin picnic baskets a few years ago. Amassed a collection of 15 of them over a couple years time --- no explanation for why except that I liked them and the feeling of picnic and al fresco they conferred stacked high in my kitchen (through cold Chicago winters). First saw a collection of them in a now-defunct design magazine in the early 90s and had to have one, then another....These plates are singing the same siren song. What is it about tin that calls to me? Can't say for the life of me.

Thanks for the shout! I love these and find them sometimes at museum and historic house shops!
