This graceful design, with its leaves, berries and butterflies, was derived directly from antique Chinese Palace porcelain. At a time when porcelain was valued because of its rarity, highly prized examples found their way to Europe, and into the hands of avid collectors. Often fitted with mounts of precious metal, they became gifts fit for kings. Many porcelain pieces produced in China during the Kangxi Period (1662-1722) had famille verte decoration — painted in transparent enamel colors, predominantly in shades of green and red. Mottahedeh’s collection is true to the eighteenth century spirit of this pattern.
Mottahedeh is the recognized leader in luxury ceramic antique reproductions and historic designs. With an emphasis on hard porcelain faience and stoneware, we license authentic fine china reproductions from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Historic Charleston Foundation, Mount Vernon, Winterthur Museum and Gardens, Monticello, and Tony Duquette. We’ve also been commissioned by the White House, the U.S. State Department, and the Diplomatic Corps to production collections used in official state capacity.
5 piece set includes: Dinner Plate, Dessert Plate, Bread & Butter Plate and Teacup with Saucer.
