Iconic Heritage and Style...

With this season’s interior trends heralding the revival of pattern and elegance, Wedgwood has turned to its incomparable design archives paying homage to its iconic heritage and style with the release of two stunning new fine bone china tableware ranges Renaissance Gold and Anthemion Blue.

In-line with today’s growing consumer desire to rediscover and celebrate the beauty of lost skills, Renaissance Gold and Anthemion Blue represents a re-birth of the Wedgwood style and a celebration of design and craft skills for which the Wedgwood brand is so renowned.

Featuring a breathtaking anthology of newly designed shapes created especially for Wedgwood’s 250th anniversary, Renaissance Gold and Anthemion Blue deliberately includes all the essential pieces for elegant dining, providing an open invitation for lovers of luxury to rediscover English craftsmanship at its finest.

Elements of architectural grandeur and artistic brilliance famous of the Renaissance era are combined with sparkling originality in Renaissance Gold, delivering an indulgent tableware range steeped in authenticity while achieving a contemporary look for today’s table.

Featuring deep blue embellished with gold gilding, the pattern design combines elegant interior design motifs, such as the laurel border favoured by neo-classical architect and designer Robert Adam with the pure oval form of the celebrated Wedgwood cameo. Bold blue accents are also used to give scale and impact, making Renaissance Gold as iconic as it is striking.

Deliberately opulent, unashamedly extravagant, Anthemion Blue celebrates 250 years of Wedgwood’s allegiance to art and fine fashion.  Showcasing the Company’s exquisite attention to detail, each piece is individually hand-decorated by skilled Wedgwood craftsmen, including the application of rich cobalt borders, classical relief ornaments and raised gold gilding.

With its traditional colonnades, laurel leaf borders, anthemion palmettes and the classical cameo figure of Terpsichore, the Greek muse, of which are all so synonymous with Wedgwood iconography, Anthemion Blue is today’s embodiment of classical and expressive design – luxurious and individual.

Renaissance Gold and Anthemion Blue are available from April 2010 in selected David Jones and Myer department stores, Peter’s of Kensington and specialty home and giftware retailers.
