Name That Dish!

Let's play a little game I call "Name That Dish"! 

When you live in Maine and people come visiting........THEY WANT LOBSTER!  I've been collecting dishes to use for our summer lobster cook outs for a couple of years now.  I pick them up relatively inexpensively at area thrift stores.  This dish I picked up last week at a local Salvation Army store for $2.00.  The tags were still on so I think it's in unused/like new condition.

Dish Particulars:
  • It measures 14" from stem to stern
  • 3 1/2" wide
  • 1 1/2" deep
  • Hand-painted by April Cornell for Sylvestri with lobsters & crabs motif
  • Recommend Hand Wash
  • (couldn't find it anywhere on the website)
It is obviously meant to use with seafood but it's intended purpose escapes me.  Can any of you "Name That Dish"?

  1. I think it may be a sushi plate, similar to this one.

  2. Very interesting. They do look similar, don't they?

    Not sure how sushi will work into our lobster coo outs! :)

  3. It actually reminds me of the way a local seafood restaurant serves their crackers--Captains Wafers butter crackers, specifically--along with smoked seafood dip in a separate bowl.

  4. Oooh! Now THAT I could do. Sounds delicious and simple. I like the idea.

  5. I don't know, but I love the dish! Great find. :)


I'll trade ya a comment for a smile!
