From France with amour.

We found this gravy boat in a flea market in Lyon, France—yep, it’s the real deal!—and we can’t wait to give it new life at the table. Can’t stop staring at that pretty floral design? Just wait till you hear how it got there: It’s all thanks to a centuries-old technique where an inked design is pressed onto a ceramic object (neat, huh?). Now, that’s something to talk about as you gather ‘round a heaping pile of mashed potatoes...
