Welcome to the 214th Tablescape Thursday!
Good Morning on this gorgeous fall day! I have a beautiful table setting to share with you! But first, I just had to say I was sooo touched by all the wonderful dreams you expressed in your comments yesterday. There’s nothing I can say except, Wow! I hope every single one comes true. Every single one! ♥
For this Tablescape Thursday, we’re off to Swizerland to dine with Cornelia in her beautiful dining room!
Cornelia recently created a table setting with a wonderful ironstone dishware. I can’t wait for you to see it! It’s bold, colorful and so pretty! Cornelia said, “The white plate is Villeroy & Boch, “Manoir.” The colored plates are made by the French Manufactory, Gien. They are made of ironstone and called Paseo. There are six different colors on my table. There are also matching cups and saucers on the table.”
Let’s move a bit closer and take a look at each place setting. Corneli, said, “The glasses with the golden rim are made by the German Factory Sussmuthglas, they are handblown.”
The cutlery is Sterlingsilver made by Jezler/Switzerland. Cornelia said, “It is a mix of the two patterns: Orfèvre (big fork) and Comtesse (small fork). Orfèvre was created 1930 in memory of the Swiss Physicist, Auguste Piccard. Comtesse was designed in 1934.”
Love the floral arrangement! Can you just imagine how wonderful these lilies must be in person…the scent must be heavenly in Cornelia’s dining room. Cornelia said, “The vase with lilies is made by Georg Jensen Denmark. It has a sterling silver rim.”
I love this view of the table. Feels like we’re sitting at the head of the table, doesn’t it?
Cornelia said, “The colored glasses are made in the former German Democratic Republic by Lausitzer Glas. They are handcut crystal. Each ones has a different pattern. The small ones are also handcut crystal and made by the German manufactory Hirschberg.” When I saw this gorgeous stemware, I kept thinking how beautiful it would be with the Spode, Woodland pattern.
What a great picture…love this angle looking down into the glass.
Cornelia has such beautiful table linens! About her tablecloth, she said, “The cotton and linen tablecloth is from Assisi Italy and is hand embroidered. It came with 12 embroidered napkins, as well.”
Cornelia said, “I found the tablecloth in a little shop in Luino/Italy. Luino is a small town near the border with Switzerland on the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore, in the Province of Varese (Lombardy, northern Italy).”
Did you notice how Cornelia decorated her beautiful candlelier. Can you imagine it lit in the evening? It must be sooo wonderfully romantic.
Cornelia, thanks so much for having us to dine in your beautiful home.
Everything was wonderful as always. We love our virtual trips to Switzerland and seeing your lovely table settings!
