Friday/ my replacement dinner plate

I broke one of my Noritake (Japanese porcelain) dinner plates last week in spectacular fashion: I made it explode on my gas cooktop with a loud bang!
(I accidentally turned on the gas burner underneath the plate for a few minutes).

Lucky for me, there were no flying pieces of porcelain, just the broken pieces on the cooktop to clean up.

This pattern is Royal Orchard by Noritake. Beautiful, not? Its production has stopped long ago (1989- 2002), but the warehouse in North Carolina still has these brand new ones in stock. Porcelain is said to be at the top of the list of heirlooms that millennials really do not want, and I am completely OK with that. That way there will be so much more left for me.
