This charger was designed for the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations for use in his personal dining room.
A family asked us to create custom dinnerware shown below using antique engravings of vegetables. The engravings had been used for advertising vegetable seeds by their grandfather’s hardware store.
Our English ceramist, who spent decades in the great potteries of England, will handpaint your treasured estate, cherished florals, or other scenes. Each piece will reflect the nuances of individually handpainted pieces.
This appetizer plate commemorated an extended trip to historical cities of Europe. The beautiful line art shown here was submitted by our client. Our artisans hand-applied the lineart transfer (printed in-house by our printer), kiln-fired the plate, handpainted each piece and then kiln-fired it a second time.
MONOGRAMS Done your way
Choose the elegance of 22k gold monogram for your custom dinnerware, perhaps give it a contemporary flair with a single initial. Or go out on the edge and choose an unusual shape combined with the flair of a bold, tone-on-tone monogram. Whatever your selection, your custom china design will be precisely executed and kiln-fired to more than 1400 degrees.
From the rich heritage of traditional coats-of-arms to bold, contemporary interpretations of this extraordinary genre, we’ll create statement-making dinnerware that will become heirlooms for the generations to come. Immediately below, we show three dinner plates featuring heraldic crests reproduced in ceramic overglazes and precious metals (gold and silver). Next, you'll see an off-center coat-of-arms created in just one color of overglaze. Last, scroll down to the hand-painted dinnerware set. More on that below.
Hand-painting coat-of-arms china lends an Old World feeling like nothing else can. For this custom dinnerware set, we laid down the black overglaze using a transfer - a technique developed over three hundred years ago in England. The pieces were kiln-fired and slowly cooled for the next step. One of our staff artists meticulously handpainted every brilliant color on 12 place settings - five pieces per setting. The finished look is timeless and handcrafted and was perfect for this client's unique tastes. We'll find the right look for you!
