Pairing 19th century pottery design with charming antique detail, the Blue Butterfly Plate looks lovely alongside almost any serveware collection. This pretty little dish comes to us from renowned ceramicist Astier de Villatte’s historic Paris workshop, housed in what was once the atelier of Napoleon’s own silversmith. There, it was handcrafted from black terracotta clay following old-school methods passed down for generations. Along with the brand’s milky white glaze, this one-of-a-kind piece is finished with a delicate butterfly, taken from celebrated designer John Derian’s expansive collection of vintage images and calligraphy. A wonderfully unique addition to any tabletop, it would also make a thoughtful gift for anyone going through a time of transformation as a symbol of change.
