Calamityware Petite Plates: Dubious Musicians

$ 50.00

Making beautiful music requires energy and enthusiasm. Of course, making terrible music also requires energy and enthusiasm. No musicians can match the energy and enthusiasm of monkey percussionists. A rather small calamity but these are pretty small plates.

Sold only in sets of four. Each set contains four different small plate designs with a different rambunctious monkey. Rich blue image on 7” (18 cm) diameter white porcelain plates. Food safe. Microwave safe. Dishwasher safe. Produced at the award-winning Kristoff porcelain workshop in Poland using the in-glaze decoration process. That means the image is slightly melted into the surface like the fine porcelain you see in museumsDesigned by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2018. 

Remember, each plate design is different—four different borders and images. The blues in this set of small plates will match each other. And, although they will look good with your other Calamityware dinner plates, the blues may be slightly different from your other Calamityware pieces because they were fired at different times.

Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.

Face your fears.

These monkeys scare the s*** out of me. Super creepy. Therefore I decided I needed them to eat my desert off of, in order to desensitize myself. I don't think it's working, but I do enjoy surprising my friends when they finish their cheesecake, bend down for a closer look, then spray crumbs from their mouths. I swear I saw the monkey smile when this happened. Cheeky bugger.

Silly, silly fun dishes

Love 'em! We have dinner plates, salad plates, rimmed soup bowls and now butter plates. They bring smiles to our faces. They mix well with blue willow serving pieces (this is a hint: we need veggie serving bowls, preferably with venus flytraps as the motif.) Nice china, nice weight. What's there not to like?

Cheeky (of course) but also dainty

I have Clamityware's tea set and decided to get these plates for tea cakes. They're perfect. I was surprised by how dainty/fine the porcelain is, but it's gone through the dishwasher and microwave and doesn't seem to care at all. The plates look great with the tea set. I feel very sophisticated, and also like I am tricking my guests. I'm glad I made this purchase!

family memories

My mother and her younger brother had a contest to see which of them could send the other the silliest birthday present each year. My uncle assured himself membership in the Silly Birthday Present Hall of Fame the year he sent Mama the wind-up monkey banging cymbals together. We all had so many good laughs with that silly-but-scary monkey. As soon as I saw the Dubious Musician Petite Plates, I knew I had to add them to my other Calamityware pieces. They are the perfect dessert plate size. I only wish Mama and Uncle DeeDee were still living so I could send them some to giggle about too.

Dubious musicians rock!

I bought these as a birthday present to myself. These little plates are perfect for sandwiches or lunch salads or desserts ( although let's face it, dessert does look good on just about any dish, because it's dessert). The designs are a lot of fun to look at, and they coordinate well with my Calamityware mugs.

I gave to friends for their 50th Wedding Anniversary and they loved them. They have all blue and white dishes but none with monkeys before these. Successful gift.

Perfect size

These plates a great for toast in the morning, a sandwich at lunch and dessert in the evening. It’s nice to have some light weight plates.

These were a gift for our daughter in law - and she loves them! She is currently eating a piece of cake and enjoying the plates immensely. Thank you!
