The Product: Vintage Portuguese wall plate with hand-painted floral design
A pre-loved and re-found, vintage Portuguese wall plate with decorative hand-painted floral decoration. This diminutive plate likely hails from the 1970s and was handmade and hand-painted in Portugal, in the traditional style.
Styling Ideas – Decorative wall plates
Think Granny chic? Think again! We have a feeling decorative, reticulated (referring to the decorative holes around the edge!) wall plates are going to have a little bit of a renaissance. Singly or (even better) grouped, they create a pleasingly pretty juxtaposition when hung against modern wallpapers. We particularly love the pretty combination of soft pinks, burgundy and jade-coloured, foliage-inspired décor.
Very subtle signs of its vintage, but overall in brilliant condition. See pre-made holes at the back of the plate for hanging with wire, ribbon or string. Alternatively, use a wall plate hook with an adhesive patch. The plate measures approximately 19cm in diameter x 2cm projection.
