French Bull believes that great design should foster the joy of celebrating with family and friends. Attending this party is Dahlia, inspired by the flower named after the 19th Century botanist Andreas Dahl: flower lover, party animal, bon vivant. At least, that's how we imagine him. Like the perennial (and Mexican national flower), our ever-efflorescent Dahlia plays many roles and charms everyone it meets.. The Dahlia plate, like many of their other products, is made of 100-percent melamine. Melamine is resistant to high heat, its shatterproof, and an ideal ground for pattern. Plus, melamine does not easily absorb fluids from food, which helps you avoid contaminating your food with harmful bacteria-a leading cause of illness and food poisoning. The durability and functionality of the material is perfect for indoor or outdoor entertaining, everyday use and is completely safe for children. The Dahlia plate is 8-inches in diameter and features a glazed surface that resists scratches. Not for microwave use. Top rack dishwasher safe. French Bull-reinterpreting everyday staples with a fresh, modern spin.
