We still have our New Year's resolution going, how about you? Eating healthy and serving it on a pretty plate helps! Chinoise Blue; this pattern is derived from 18th century Chinese Export porcelain. The simple leaf and ribbon borders in gold, cobalt and rust create a subtle yet elegant effect. This service is equally appropriate in a board room, formal dinner setting, or for a quiet evening at home.
Mottahedeh's votive collection make the perfect double holiday gift. First a wonderful fragrance fills your room then after the candle is done you are left with a beautiful covered porcelain container. Use it for jewelry bedside, in the bathroom for small goods or the entrance foyer to hide your keys and spare change.
Fall is in full bloom with the Orion vases from our Rookwood collection, The vellum glazes made famous by Rookwood in the early 1900s is precisely reproduced in an Ombre radiating from a warm honey to a deep brown.
A lemon meringue tart sits pretty on our Chelsea Feather Gold plates. Tradition with a modern twist, Mottahedeh deconstructed a formal Rococo dinner service dating back to 1770, keeping the scalloped shape and 22K gold feathered edge and removed the design to create a clean fresh look.
I found this in an old entertaining book. Does anyone set a formal table anymore? 12 pieces of cutlery and 5 drinking glasses, The world has certainly changed and gotten more casual. By these standards, our formal tables would be considered at most semi-formal.
Flowers brighten up every room. This little treasure is an exact reproduction of a porcelain purchased by Mottahedeh from Christie's auction in 1992 featuring recovered cargo of of the Vung Tao sailing ship. The ship sank off the coast of Vietnam in 1690. The recovered cargo consisted of over 48,000 ceramics, mostly Kangxi blue-and-white porcelain from the kilns of Jingdezhen. This miniature covered jar is 6 1/2 inches tall and is faithfully reproduced in minute detail.
A vintage piece of Mottahedeh creamware. This lovely rococo tiered candy dish features ornate carvings of dolphins and sea shells perched upon coral branches. It is very romantic and reminiscent of many fountains found in Europe.
