Black Chamba Ware
Plates so dark, you won't need to wash them. I just saw a set of Chamba Ware at a client's house and had to try and find them. Inexpensive, totally non-toxic, washable and bakeable, this extremely dark servingware is stunningly beautiful in an romantic and austere way. Use it at a candlelit supper on a black table cloth in the middle of winter, or with red wine on a midsummer evening. it is a durable showstopper. FYI the picture at right sucks.
I had a hard time finding it online, but you can get the lowdown HERE.
It also comes in serving bowls and many other shapes, and can be found at:
