Welcome to the 197th Tablescape Thursday!
For this Tablescape Thursday, we’re flying off to Switzerland to dine with Cornelia in her beautiful garden. Cornelia created this table a few weeks ago for a special occasion. Cornelia wrote, “Today we celebrate Ascension in Switzerland.”
“I created a tablescape, a fresco using mostly China from the German Manufactory Nymphenburg. This is the view from the first floor balcony.”
“The China is by Nymphenburg. Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg has been handcrafting the finest porcelain for 260 years.”
“Since 1996 the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg has been under the patronage of HRH Duke Franz of Bavaria.”
“In October 2011 Prince Luitpold of Bavaria took over Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg.”
Come a bit closer for a better view…
Cornelia said, “The china is all hand-painted.”
“Each plate has a different pattern and form.”
“The Cutlery is silver (800 and 925) made by the Swiss Manufactory Jezler. The pattern is called Empire. Unfortunately, it is no longer produced.”
” The fork in the middle is a fish fork. The napkins are also vintage; they are hand embroidered.”
“The Campagne glass is vintage, handgut crystal. The small glass is by the French manufactory Baccarat the small coloured waterglass is made by the German manufactory Theresienthal.”
“The peonies are from my garden. The vase is handcut crystal.”
“The tablecloth is made by the french manufactory, Garnier Thiebaut.”
I can’t imagine a more beautiful place to dine than in the garden. The peonies are gorgeous! Cornelia, thanks so much for taking us into the garden for this Tablescape Thursday!
I didn’t get a chance to share the pictures of the lovely tea/coffee table Cornelia placed nearby. We’ll save that for another day real soon.
Looking forward to all the wonderful table settings for this Tablescape Thursday!
