Undergrowth Design - Blaue Blume Tea Set

Blaue Blume, the blue flower, is a central symbol of Romanticism, representing desire, love, and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. We can't think of anything more romantic than Undergrowth Design's Blaue Blume Tea set - delicate porcelain with a white lace pattern and a hot pair of legs with dainty gold shoes for the handle? Here at last is a tea set even the men in your life can appreciate!

Our favorite is the 'sugar bath' - a claw foot bathtub where the legs are the spoon. Check out our assortment in the webshop.

Wonderland - Élise Lefebvre

Élise Lefebvre's "Wonderland" collection evokes in porcelain what Aesop and other great storytellers did with words; the sly inquisitiveness of the fox, the innocent naivete of the fawn, or the sweet intelligence of the piglet. These perfectly formed woodland creatures seem to have partaken of Alice's infamous shrinking "Drink Me" elixir, and are equally at home foraging on your dresser or decorating your decolletage. The only question is which one you think is cutest.

Other pieces in the Wonderland collection include the Bambi Box and no less cute, the Hedgehog Plate. Check out our assortment in the webshop.
