Something of Use from 30 years ago~

As dievca is pulling items out for a Christmas Dinner with friends, she realized that this
Crate & Barrel serving platter has been in her life for about 30 years. It’s a piece that has a lot of mileage on it and still looks lovely.  The bonus is that the removable dip container can be refilled without moving the whole server and it cleans up easily.

Do you use or need something similar?

dievca was curious if Crate & Barrel still offered this item — No.

she saw it on resale sites (apparently others did not find it as useful or broke the dip holder…)

The closest items she found on the Crate & Barrel website and in stores are:

Crate & Barrel Classic White Chip and Dip Server (click on photo to purchase)

Dip piece is attached….no ease of refilling. Dishwasher safe, though.

Crate & Barrel Tondo wood chip and dip server (click photo to purchase)

Close, but that dip bowl will move around as people use it.

Crate & Barrel Two-piece glass chip and dip server (click photo to purchase)

Lovely – but glass?  dievca would break something within the next 30 years.

So, it looks like dievca will stay with her old favorite! 😉
