This gorgeous decorative platter is a harmony of apricot, gray blue, turquoise, white, black and mauve in a collection of dots, stripes and geometric shapes. It measures 10 inches square and weighs 1 pound, 8 ounces. The mostly unglazed reverse is signed Hafner with the copyright mark and 1980. It's in outstanding condition, with just the expected marks on the unglazed portion of the reverse.

This sleek and sophisticated platter, done in early postmodern Memphis style, is a delight to the eye and will warm any art lover’s heart.
