The Shell series is attractive for its irregular shaped edge.

The Hakusan Porcelain “Shell” plate was originally designed in the early ’60s and was exhibited in MOMA in New York. We were excited to discover the 1968 MOMA catalogue at Hakusan. It is truly beautiful and we wish we could see catalogues like this today.

This is the Whirlpool design.
