The White Lace Fruit Dish 5" is part of Villeroy and Boch's White Lace Pattern.Bone China with Platinum
White Lace – both traditional and modern at the same time: this delicate, filigree web of threading, used since time immemorial for costly tablecloths, sumptuous clothing and the finest cloth, is firmly rooted in European culture. As an indispensable part of any dowry, costly lace was handed down from generation to generation, as a precious family heirloom or a sign of one's own identity, or that of belonging to a certain group. The allure and fascination of lace has gone on unbroken to this very day: haute couture uses it for its exclusive creations as much as interior design does.
With White Lace, Villeroy & Boch is presenting a bright, shimmering but also graceful décor reminiscent of costly lace and embroidery from the geometric patterns applied with soft ornamentation along the fine bordering – minimalist, essential and stylishly contemporary. Its reserved elegance is further underscored by the harmonious interplay between simple shapes and their high-quality platinum décor. Its cool, silvery shimmer expresses luxury and modernity while its graceful ornamentation conveys a sense of minimalist opulence.
White Lace is built upon the graceful classic style found in Anmut, and reflects the current trend towards geometry as a core décor motif. The Anglo-Saxon cultural influence towards fine dining is unmistakeable here as well. The combination of pure white bone china porcelain with the delicate, airy appearance of the platinum bordering gives the dishware an elegant understatement that is also highly in demand in modern wedding tableware. Each piece displays an individualised combination of bordering and, as an opulent variation to the platinum décor, there is also a breakfast plate in the "White Lace Mosaic" sideline decorated with full-surface bordering. Interesting tableware creations can also be mixed and matched with the white dishware set Anmut.
The matching drinking glasses from the Samarkand Platinum Edition set are decorated on the transition from stem to chalice with a platinum element which simply but effectively accentuates the long-stemmed glassware. The Arpeggio cutlery set, with its slim silhouette, is perfect for party table-settings. The petite, minimalist design with lines in an engraved look brings tradition, clarity and refinement into harmony with one another and by the same token gives the cutlery an unusually wide and versatile range of uses. In daily use, Arpeggio gives dishware an aura of freshness and elegance, and classic white dishware a special touch. It can even be beautifully combined with Country sets.
