well, you get a bain marie A large pan containing hot water in which smaller pans may be set to cook food slowly or to keep food warm. (A double boiler) [French, from Medieval Latin balneum Mariae, bath of Maria, probably after Maria, an early alchemist.] Leaving till the end of August, for a decision.

I can't find any reference to marie as a plate border, and it's not in OED (which mentions only marie biscuits. However, from what little I know of pottery, an ornamented border might well be made separately, and later married to the centrepiece, so the anon editor (22:15 4 Jul 06 edit to Marie) may have misheard. --Enginear 12:18, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
I think that it may be possible, cf marie biscuits and bain maries etc. but as no verification rfv failed for now. Andrew massyn 17:59, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
