We can always dream!
These days many of us have to do the holidays in very small gatherings of two or three... but we can always dream of a full dinner table! And with the end of the pandemic in sight, we can plan for a wonderful Easter. So this week I am bringing together all the wonderful dessert services that currently reside in my stock room (and there are more than the nine in this picture). I love each and every one of them, in all their different ways. I stock dessert services that I truly love, and obviously my customers do as well as they are popular. I also try to have a range of prices so they don't all have to cost the world.
And when I say "all dessert services" that is only partly true, as I actually have more in the pipeline. To make these services ready for sale takes a lot of work. I source them, get them shipped, unpack them carefully, wash them even more carefully, check each and every piece, consider whether any repairs are necessary or desirable (and if yes, get them repaired), research their history, take pictures, write up their history and only then can I offer them to you. Sometimes this takes a few months!
Many porcelain dealers are in the sad habit of splitting up services. More money can be made if each piece is sold separately, and this breaks my heart so I never do this. In fact, I often put together pieces that I find here or there - and I noticed that some of my suppliers now do as well, knowing that I like to sell them as one. So even if these big services are not cheap, they come at a better price all together - and nothing gives me more joy than to see a whole service together and, even better, pass it on to a good forever-home.
Many customers send me pictures of their dinner tables and I can tell you, it always makes my day 🥰🙏 Personally I love dinner parties and I look forward to a time when I can receive friends and loved ones at home again!
So enjoy the pictures today, and you can find all these beauties in my shop here on their own special page... and I will keep adding to this on a weekly basis. You can find my entire available collection here. If you always want to see the latest additions, follow me on Instagram... I post pictures and a story every single day.
And if you don't know what to choose, there are gift cards you can send... see the link below! 🎁🎁
Happy weekend, and I hope you manage to make a beautiful dinner table for the holidays! 🍽🎄🕎🕊
