ANGUS & CELESTE BLUE ROOS PLATE
The Blue Roos Series offers a range of tableware with an intricate illustration featuring a boomer, jill, and joey in cerulean blue. A bearer of the Australian Coat of Arms, the Kangaroo is a uniquely Australian image and seen as a symbol of curiosity and forward movement, which serve as two of the hallmarks of A & C design.
The wonderfully speckled glaze used in the Blue Roos Series offers a subtle earthiness that counterpoints the vibrant blue of the imagery.
The entire Blue Roos range is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.
