Chinoiserie Sugar Bowl in Gold
The perfection of the Orient incarnate in one table setting. Crafted by exceptional Viennese artists in “white gold” - as porcelain was traditionally called - these extraordinary gold and platinum plated sugar bowls reveal the secret that tantalised the Western world ever since Marco Polo brought porcelain from Asia to Europe more than 600 years ago.
Composed of merely four elements: feldspar, quartz, kaolin, and water (each porcelain factory, until today, guards the exact proportions of their recipe secret) porcelain fulfils the alchemists dream of transforming base elements into precious objects. Works of art to showcase the artistry and sophistication of the simple things in life.
