    Tablecraft Cool items stay chilled on a stainless-steel tray atop the double-walled 15" D by 4" H “Remington” bowl filled with ice.

    Riedel Nachtmann’s “Dancing Stars Bossa Nova” 12 3/5" diameter chip and dip can also be flipped over to use as a pedestal plate.

    Sambonet The swirled 16" “Vertigo” oyster plate and coordinating 4" bowl are available in stainless steel and silver plate. A stainless-steel wire stand adds dramatic elevation.

    Villeroy & Boch The soft, gentle contours of “Modern Grace” are brilliant white, thin, light to the touch, and translucent with high resistance to chipping. The 11 3/4" by 7" oval footed bowl is a great vehicle for bouillabaisse, mussels, or steamers.

    Steelite International “Craft Grey” is a sophisticated new color addition to the “Craft” line, reminiscent of hand-crafted pottery with rich glazes and simple lines. The 10" plate and 5" freestyle bowl are shown.

    American Metalcraft The three-tier version was so popular that the new two-tier “Ascent 2”—19 3/4" D by 13" H in hammered stainless steel—was recently introduced.

    Oneida Foodservice The asymmetrical shapes of Sant’ Andrea’s “Mood” are meant to evoke the smooth contours of surf-worn stones. The 16.1" platter is shown.

    Rosenthal From the “A La Carte” collection comes the 9" Nimbus deep plate in white porcelain.
