V&A and John Lewis Yama Side Plates, White/Gold, Dia.21cm, Set of 4

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

V&A inspired, John Lewis designed.

Our designers have produced a series of unique decorative pieces, capturing the creative spirit of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Inspired by the V&A’s collection of Japanese art and design, celebrating the beauty of nature and asymmetry alongside exotic or mythical creatures.

Our Yama side plates’ unique illustrations transition from figurative to graphic across the set, while real gold detailing reflects the rich treasury of gold and brass that embellishes both the architecture and decoration of the V&A. Modern and luxurious, every piece in this bone china series sits well with our Contour dinnerware.

Choosing the perfect china

All our china is made from clay and kiln-fired for durability. Except for pieces with special trims, everything is dishwasher safe. Below are a few options to consider when choosing your perfect china.

EarthenwareStrong and practical, perfect for everyday. Its cream colour and low firing temperatures allow for designed pieces.
StonewareTougher than earthenware and chip resistant. Ideal for heavy use and can often go into the oven to temperatures of up to 250°C.
TerracottaUses a clay with a rich body colour giving the characteristic base colour, and has a low glaze firing allowing bright coloured glazes. Porous body allows for good thermal expansion and contraction properties making it an ideal body for cookware such as tagines and roasters.
PorcelainDelicate yet strong. Carefully selected clays give whiteness and translucency. It can often go from oven to table.
Fine china The synthetic bone ash used in fine china makes it a more affordable alternative to bone china whilst maintaining the benefits - strength, translucency & delicacy.
Bone china Bone china is made from 40% bone ash. This makes strong yet thin and delicate pieces which are microwave, dishwasher* and oven safe making each piece ideal for everyday use, not just formal.
