Rosenthal Tableware

Sunday, 14 February 2010

rosenthal tablewareMany grand restaurants cannot do without Rosenthal dinnerware. Its subtlety and durability, the dazzling white of its porcelain, its classic and modern designs ... This exquisite tableware combines all the grandeur of the genuine traditional German porcelain with the ancient traditions. The company was founded by Philip Rosenthal in 1879 in Selb, Germany. After seven years in the American company engaged in the china import, 25-year-old Philip started by founding an art studio specializing in the porcelain manufacture.

He reckoned on the cheap labor, proximity to the railroad and the low prices for initial china supplies and his reckoning was right - the new company quickly took off. In 1886, Rosenthal introduced the iconic cigar ashtray with the inscription «A place to rest the burning cigar» which was entered in the registry of the local royal court and achieved huge sales figures afterwards. Over the decades, the Rosenthal Company emerged to one of the world's finest porcelain and crystal manufacturers in the world. The founder's motto since 1900 was that «only through better form and decor can a manufacturer win the lead over its competition».

The Rosenthal fine porcelain cups and plates quickly gained popularity. The main guideline for Philipp Rosenthal & Co has always been synthesis of tradition and the avant-garde, so though simple and elegant, each porcelain piece is a true work of art.

One of the latest collections, designed by well-known chief Massimiliano Alajmo, Rosenthal's «In.Gredienti» illustrates the idea of a never-ending search for the harmony between the form and the content. Smooth, flowing lines of Rosenthal tableware are accentuated by the sparkling polished inside part contrasting with the dull opaque edges, which represent «the auditorium», an amphitheater framing a beautiful stage for haute cuisine dishes. This is a masterpiece collection without a pattern, which boasts an amazing play of form and texture, accentuating the exquisite, gourmet nature of the dish.

The beautiful designs of Rosenthal tableware are created not only by the world famous chefs, but by no less famous designers. The original focus on classic traditional designs (marketed under «Classic Rose») turned into a whole new movement in 1961. This was when Philip Rosenthal, Jr. launched the Rosenthal Studio-Line: a tabletop line that employed the talents of more than 100 famous artists and designers to give day-to-day product that certain sparkle of lifestyle and an appreciation for master quality.

In 1993, the Rosenthal Company teamed with Versace to create a bright, expressive tableware collection in which amazing animal patterns were combined with miniatures, and glittering gold ornaments - with Chinese pagodas, while Greek fountains peacefully coexisted with Perseus symbols. This collection is truly original and its black and gold splendor is virtually irresistible. Rosenthal for Versace ranges include Meandre, Medusa, Russian Dream, Hot Flowers, Tabletop, Barocco, Butterfly Garden, and Hot Flowers. More refined and sophisticated, Home Designs emerged in 1998 as a fruit of collaboration between Rosenthal and another luxury giant, Bvlgary jewelry house. Home Designs range includes porcelain, crystal and solid silver flatware. The original porcelain patterns are the work of the Italian artist Davide Pizzigoni.

When speaking about fine Rosenthal tableware, Rosenthal classic range should not be left behind. The range incorporates the shapes and designs of the XIX century using present-day technologies. Elegant classic patterns characteristic of the ancient German tradition emphasize the quality of the work of the contemporary artists. The classic never fades when it is a classic Rosenthal piece bringing new visitors to the most famous restaurants and hotels.

An essential part of German dining culture, Rosenthal Hutschenreuther is another prominent family of fine china dinnerware. This line includes not only dinnerware porcelain with fancy designs for fine dining, but also candlesticks, ashtrays, vases, bells, figurine, jewelry and miscellaneous gift ideas designed to make your table, your kitchen or dining room welcoming and elegant. The beauty of the dining is not only in food which is served on the plate but in a plate itself, in the interior design and table decoration ... That's why Rosenthal is engaged in the manufacture of textiles and interior designs accessories. Do not forget about wine, an important attribute of the festive table, as there is diVino crystal line by Rosenthal. DiVino glasses are perfect for casual dining as well for giftware.

Thomas is another Rosenthal brand designed for casual dining. This line includes glassware, flatware, and cutlery - all necessary ingredients for pleasant family dinners which help to create a festive mood every day. A sense of tradition coupled with the avant-garde is the underlying principle behind Rosenthal, a worldwide leading company.
