Porcelain was invented in China over 2,000 years ago before gradually spreading to other countries. Known for its aesthetics and strength, porcelain combines well with both paints and glazes. Some of the key lots in the upcoming auction presented by Christie’s are modeled with porcelain. The Contemporary Fine Dining sale will include a royal Copenhagen set of six luncheon plates and eight side plates, as well as a set of 12 onion-shaped vases by Daniel Reynolds.
Other highlights of the auction include a Meissen porcelain carp tureen and cover and a set of four silver pheasants, each realistically shaped with chased plumage. The auction offers fine dining tableware ranging from Versace and Dior-designed plates and cutlery to Baccarat glass and silver candelabras. These lots invoke a variety of prints and patterns, including flora, fruit, and vegetable motifs. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Christie’s.
