    Beautiful plates, lovely packaging

    I purchased 8 (all different patterns) of the Kutani collection round dessert plates. They arrived safely, quickly, in a lovely fabric wrap. I am giving these as a gift so the packaging was important to me. Now I don’t even have to wrap! The craftsmanship and designs are wonderful and each pattern is unique in it's own way. Very happy with this purchase. They are just shy of 6” in diameter so perfect for appetizers or dessert. Musubi Kiln is very easy to work with.



    What a great idea to use the plates for appetizers or dessert. Your coordinated dinner must be a wonderful dinner. Thank you very much for using our plates and taking your time to leave a wonderful comment.
