Holiday Shopping List #4: Painterly Plates

Here’s today’s addition to your holiday gift checklist. We’ll do five a week till we run out of time or you run out of money.  

GROWNUP GIRLS probably don’t need any more dinner dishes. But a few more dessert plates? Who would resist? Especially these stoneware Midnight Fruit and Flowers dessert or salad plates, four for $88 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Store. The images are based on the work of 17th-century Italian artist Orsola Maddalena Caccia, whose studio supported a convent with her art. PS: There’s also a Midnight Floral version, featuring details from A Bouquet of Flowers by 17th-century Flemish Clara Peeters. The plates are 8 inches in diameter.
