The Wonki Ware Plain Wash dinner service is hand crafted by local artisans in the Western Cape of South Africa.
The 16-piece dinner sets comprises:
4 dinner plates - Plain Wash Finish
4 side plates - Plain Wash Finish
4 pudding bowls - Plain Wash Finish
4 pasta bowls - Plain Wash Finish
In this dinner service you will receive a full set of plain wash pieces. A plain wash means that the pieces have no patterns. They are hand painted and finished in your chosen colour.
Each piece is made entirely by hand, so no two pieces will ever be the same. There may be blemishes, colour differences or bumps and curves in different places. This is what gives Wonki Ware its unique beauty and charm. It isn’t machine made, it isn’t uniformly produced and, in our opinion, the minor imperfections are what help to make it practically perfect.
The first time you lay your table with a Wonki Ware dinner service or serve your summer salad in one of the iconic Wonki Ware salad bowls we can almost guarantee that everyone at the table will be impressed.
For guidance on what your dinner service will look like please read the following specifications:
Dinner plates: 29cm diameter
Side Plate: 23cm diameter
Pudding bowls: 16 x 4 cm
Pasta bowls: 25 x 5 cm
Patterns: The plain wash dinner service has no patterns. All of the shapes are finished in a plain wash in the colour of your choice.
If you want your dinner service to feature some patterned finishes then we suggest ordering a Plain Wash & Mixed Patterns Dinner Service. This features different patterns on two of the shapes and a plain wash finish on the remaining two shapes.
Colours: Also available in Duck Egg, Warm Grey or Blue.
Dishwasher Safe: The plates and bowls are safe to be put in the dishwasher but please take care to stack the items carefully and don't lean heavy items on them.
What our customers say: “Our Wonki Ware dinner service was given to us as a gift. At first we were almost too nervous to use it, “saving it for best” while we wheeled out the trusty old white plates for daily use. But when we discovered that the plates and bowls could be washed in the dishwasher we started to use them more confidently. Now the simplest meal looks so lovely and we feel so proud when friends come for dinner and we serve it on our Wonki Ware plates! Every single person comments on it and it honestly just makes everything look better! We even let the children use the side plates for their beans on toast – best looking supper in town and so far no breakages …"
