Modern Mediterranean interpretation
MARE NOSTRUM is one of the liveliest examples of the renaissance of a historical pattern through new decoration. The Rococo shape - designed around 1760 - was reissued in 1928 as a dinner service for seafood. Painted in bright red tones with naturalistic depictions of lobster and shells, complemented by a perfectly modelled lobster as a handle for the terrine lid, the shape and decor result in a fresh and modern interpretation of the Mediterranean theme.
