Retro Dish / by Jacqueline Iskander Mosaics

Retro Dish. Approx. 21" l x 7" w x 5" h. 

I've done a bit of research on this Royal Haegar ceramic dish, but have yet to identify its time period. It looks retro to me, so I'm calling it Retro Dish. I bought this dish for a couple of bucks at an estate sale many years ago, and recently decided to give it a face lift, via mosaic. 

As can be seen, I'm making progress on the black base, after using copper gold strips for the rim. I decided to mosaic one row of black on the inside top edge, as well. 

The rim, and the top rows on either side of the rim, were very tricky. The first few rows of black on the outside of the dish were also quite challenging—especially around the sharp curves at the ends—due to the shape of the dish. I am currently working on row 7, moving toward the center of the dish on its bottom, and it is more manageable. The top photo shows my progress at 4 rows.
