Welcome to the 206th Tablescape Thursday!
Thanks so much for all your comments on yesterday’s post. I haven’t had a chance to reply to the questions left in the comments, since that post went up so late last night, but I’ll definitely be doing that today.
For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, we’re jetting off to Switzerland to dine on my friend, Cornelia’s wonderful balcony. It’s always such a treat to see how she dresses her table, especially since so many of the treasures she uses are not readily found here in the U.S.
No matter which way you look…
The views are spectacular from up here.
See what I mean! Wow!
Cornelia e-mailed to say, “After a period of cold and rainy weather, sunshine appeared again. It gave me the inspiration to create a tablescape on my balcony using a very old hand-painted china of unknown origin, very old Val St. Lambert Glasses (around 1900) and Jezler silver cutlery.”
Let’s take a closer look!
Cornelia said, “The tablecloth is Swiss embroidery, vintage.”
Such a pretty arrangement for the center of the table! I love yellow roses.
“The glass bowl is hand cut crystal from the Czechoslovakian Manufactory Moravske Sklarny Kvetna and was produced before 1989.”
“This plate is very old and of unknown origin (it is not marked) but it is all hand-painted. ”
“The plate is made by Nymphenburg/Germany. It is all hand painted.”
“The bread plate is by Herend, New Ozier pattern.”
“The wine glasses are made by the Belgium manufactory, Val St. Lambert. They are crystal glass, all hand cut. The small glasses are made by the Swiss manufactory, Glasi Hergiswil. They are hand-blown and hand-painted and are a copy of the so called Flueeli Glass which was produced around 1820.”
Isn’t the design just beautiful in the glassware? Gorgeous!
“The silver cutlery is by Jezler, Switzerland. The pattern is called Centenaire and is no longer produced.”
“The napkins are vintage and hand embroidered.”
“The bowl is bohemian Crystal, hand painted and gilded.”
Such a pretty way to serve fruit.
Isn’t the floral detail beautiful?
Cornelia, thanks so much for sharing your beautiful setting atop your balcony! We loved it! Looking forward to all the beautiful tablescapes posted for this Tablescape Thursday!
