This item is a Couroc service dish that is very unique. It is all black except for a hand inlaid picture in the center of two birds on a branch. Couroc serving pieces are cherished gifts because of their variety and beauty of design. Hand inlaid by master craftsmen, shells, coins, woods and metals are fused into satin black phenolic. They are impervious to alcohol and boiling water. Wash with mild soap and water. They are made by Couroc in Monterey, California. It measures approximately 7 1/2" across. It is in very good shape but has a couple surface scratches on the inside. Please ask any questions before purchasing.
