Here it is my very fav dishes I made for my daughter Sofia when she got married. The borders are imitating the native men's embroidery cuffs and the women's blouses collars and of course, the roses, everything is embroidered on their apparel.
I love this pretty rooster on the sugar bowl, since it was hand made, every piece was different and so was the decorations.
The oil and vinegar decanters. The napkin rings. She has lots of serving pieces, tea cups and everything you can imagin, it's very difficult to show in a table setting everything!
She has a set of three of these serving platters, large, med. and small...this one is the medium. I love it!
The butter dish with the lid... can also be used for cheese.
The entire table with the French wine glasses. The center piece is Italian, it was a gift from an Italian friend from NY., now she owns it!
The tureen and the dessert bowl.
Little expresso cups with a small pitcher.
The three pieces I used, the dinner plate and the plate for the onion soup bowl with an onion in the lid.....you can put it in the oven with the soup and bring it directly to the table.
A close up of the hand made onion and the pitcher.
The beautiful dinner plate...you can see the work on it, it really looks like the embroidery they do here on the clothing.
I had to take a photo of Sofia's gorgeous, vintage hutch from Holland...I love this piece and the wood carvings on it!
Victoria's cake in the corner. She has beautiful ginger jars too, she collects them, European and Oriental, she must have at least a dozen of them, all over the house. Bellow the foot of the hutch.
This china is really my very favorite of the ones I used to design at my husband's ceramic co. The borders imitate embroidery of the men's cuffs on their shirts and the collars, of the women's blouses and of course the embroidery of the roses. I made this one when Sofia got married, just for her! Hope you like this tablescape I did at my daughter Sofia's town- house, now that we where there for Victoria's b'day bash and Father's Day. Thanks in advance for your lovely visits. Love, Fabby
