Mottahedeh is the recognized leader in luxury ceramic antique reproductions and historic designs.

With an emphasis on hard porcelain faience and stoneware, we license authentic fine china reproductions from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Historic Charleston Foundation, Mount Vernon, Winterthur Museum and Gardens, Monticello, and Tony Duquette. We’ve also been commissioned by the White House, the U.S. State Department, and the Diplomatic Corps to production collections used in official state capacity. We offer an incredible collection of timeless fine china dinnerware patterns such as Tobacco Leaf and Blue Canton.

What do we make?

Produced mainly in Portugal, we used time-honored techniques to create modern classics.

Our patterns primarily are based on traditional Chinese Exports for the West, as well as Early European and Chinese designs.

Each piece we create has a story.
