Welcome to the 114th Tablescape Thursday!
I’ve been working on a tablescape this week out on the porch…the weather here has been in the 70′s all week! Love it! But, the last few days have been raining…not great for taking pics to share. Fortunately, Cornelia recently sent some great pics of a wonderful tablescape she’s created in celebration of the autumn season.
It’s always such a treat when Cornelia welcomes us into her beautiful home in Switzerland. Isn’t blogging just amazing…we can travel far away to another country with just the click of a mouse!
Today we are dining at a table set with beautiful hunt- themed china. Cornelia told me, “It is very traditional in Switzerland to serve venison dishes in the autumn because the hunting season starts the 1st of September.”
For this beautiful table setting, Cornelia used a wonderful linen tablecloth she found on a trip to Williams-Sonoma in Boston. The tablecloth was made in Russia, as were the the napkins..
Here’s your place right here…
Cornelia shared, “The china used on this table is by Fuerstenberg (founded 1747). The Pattern is called Schloss Corvey Jagd. (Castle Corvey Hunting). There are various hunting scenes on the dishes and the pot, cups, and coffeepot.”
The cutlery is Sterling Silver, Gorham Chantilly
The stemware is stunning…
Cornelia revealed, “The smaller crystal glasses are made by Christinenhütte/Germany. They are also hand-blown.”
These glasses are antique and are decorated in silver…
Cornelia continued, “The red and white wine glasses are hand-blown and hand-cut crystal by Cristal d’Arques/ Paris. The pattern is called, “Bernadette”.
The candle holders are by Zwiesel. The grapes from our garden.”
The crystal carafe is antique and hand-cut…
Note the beautiful etching of a deer…
Regarding the candle holders, Cornelia said, “The tall candlestick holders are Mexican silver, the small ones are made by Jezler of Switzerland.”
Would you like some hot tea or coffee?
Cornelia told me, “The tea set is Swiss silver, made by Frère Boujon. The tray is also silver and made by Jezler/Switzerland.”
“The tablecloth is antique.”
“The vase is Swedish, Strombergshyttan. The roses from my garden.”
Cornelia, this tablescape was absolutely beautiful…always such a wonderful treat seeing china, crystal and silver we would rarely ever come across here in the States. Thanks sooo much for sharing your autumn table setting with all of us for this Tablescape Thursday!
