The rococo period was the age of splendid table settings with pompous baskets, serving platters and magnificent vases. Today's table decorations are rather more pragmatic – fruit and bread baskets, salt and pepper, candlesticks, storage containers and champagne beakers – but not without the love of detail. From purely decorative table flowers and elegant lanterns based on natural shapes right up to simple salt cellars and sugar sprinklers, a wide variety of porcelain objects may be found here to enrich tables in a unique way.
Candlelight is the crowning glory of the table. Especially when the source of light is held in the finest Nymphenburg porcelain.
Everyone needs them, everyone values them: and yet not all spoons are created equal.
Inspired by Nymphenburg's creations, Muehling has produced a series of bowls, vases and lanterns entitled MARITIME COLLECTION whose curving lines refer to the shape of sea creatures.
The clearer an object’s shape, the better quality the material has to be.
The last kick to enhance a dish calls for a pair of handmade salt and pepper containers.
The hands of our craftspeople gradually form the miniatures as unique as their natural archetype.
Traditionally Bavarian accessories as the knife rest in the shape of an antler still reflect the manufactory’s roots.
Together with the experts in product development, the designer Ted Muehling realised the new objects for Tortoise in just one and a half years - handmade artefacts, shaped with passion, perfection and poetry.
