Vista Alegre Castelo Branco Oval Plate / Platter
- Product DetailsCastelo Branco Oval Plate / Platter by Vista Alegre. Within the Portuguese handicrafts, embroidery holds a special place, of great beauty and originality it’s uniqueness is also enriched by the connection to Catelo Branco, the capital city of a region with a strong linen tradition and where the mulberry trees grew easily (the motif used to decorate pieces in the collection). The 18th century is thought to have been the most prosperous time for embroidery. After a period of relative neglect, it re-emerged in the first quarter of the 20th century, precisely in the region of Castelo Branco. Castelo Branco tableware pays tribute to the traditional Portuguese handwork, reproducing the weaving of the delicate and elegant motifs –– in a sober blue, where only the bright yellow contrasts with the whiteness of the porcelain.
