Quintessence Blog: New York Tabletop


September 18, 2013

The blog Quintessence posted a pretty thorough post about the brand new Tony Duquette by Mottahedeh line we just launched last week. Shoot on over to their blog or read it below. CLICK "A new collaboration between Tony Duquette (with Hutton Wilkinson at the helm) andMottahedeh resulted in a distinctive collection of colorful pieces. The medallion service plates are available in blue lapis, Malachite and red tortoise shell."

"A charming artichoke tureen with stand was inspired by a 19th century English antique porcelain. The elegant melon tureen is glazed matte white with matte gold leaves."

"And I loved the surprise of color when opened."

"The Barriera Corallina pattern is ten sided with a hand painted raised coral design. The dessert plate includes the addition of a center pattern."

"And it’s amazing how much more baroque it feels in the gold color way." "Tony Duquette also introduced a grouping of basalt look alike pieces. Actually a matte black glaze to emulate the much heavier stoneware, my favorites were these striking Noble Stags. Available as a large tureen and smaller compete, they are adorned with 22k gold accents and would be fabulous accents to either traditional or modern dining environs." "Mottahedeh has also expanded its representation of Jars, which it introduced last season."

"Like fine china, this beautiful French stoneware is glazed at very high temperatures, resulting in a strong and durable product with a subtle crackle effect in its proprietary glaze. I love the natural organic shapes and sensibility."
