The coastal Tunisian town of Nabeul has been a center for ceramic production since the Roman era. In a small, sunlit studio near the Mediterranean Sea, a team of potters and painters crafts this festive earthenware platter entirely by hand. The unadorned shape is fired to create a “bisque,” which is then painted entirely freehand, without the use of decals or machines. It makes a dramatic presentation as a serving piece, or displayed on a sideboard an example of a time-honored and practical North African art form.


Handcrafted in Tunisia. 7"W x 16"L.


Dishwasher and microwave safe (although it is longer than some household microwaves can accommodate). Not intended for freezer, oven, or stovetop.

                The coastal Tunisian town of Nabeul was first settled by the Greeks in the 5th century B.C.

                Anyone fortunate enough to have traveled in North Africa can attest to how delicious the traditional tagine is. Both the name of the cuisine and the name of the dish that is used to prepare it, tagine is a Berber meal that often includes meat or poultry, a mix of aromatic spices, and additions such as raisins or dates, preserved lemons, and almonds—all served over couscous. The base doubles as the serving dish, and removing the cone-shaped lid at the table always makes for a dramatic and mouth-watering presentation.
