Plainly elegant

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:45:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

It inspires a Roman theme or a Mediterranean atmosphere. Perhaps even recalls the Shabby Chic art movement in England in the past decades.  The Richard Ginori Galatea is all white and pure, a line of ivories presented in finely crafted tin-glazed ceramics. The whiteness of this collection exudes innocence; an artistic take deprived of colors becomes the central ingredient to its allure. As the single item is elegant in simplicity, collecting them all side by side gives your dinner set a Romanesque grandeur, which ironically, highlighted by the simplicity of plain white. The collection includes the complete line of dinnerware in distinct shapes, such as oval and round platters, coffee teapots, cups and saucers, and soup and salad bowls. Also included are vases as liquid vessels, milk jugs and sugar bowl with lid.
Richard Ginori  is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Flowers and dinners

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Salisbury (32)

Flower blooms are a natural theme for fine dinnerware. They exude warmth, beauty and a relaxing touch to a porcelain set.  The designers also have a wide room to express their designs across varied colors of the flowers, leaves and stems. The Salisbury porcelain collection takes this theme to highlight the elegance in its dinnerware. The American Dogwood plays around the soft green leaves with the pure white flowers and capped them with black tips as accent. It creates an easy feel to the plates. Likewise, the Arcadia is liberal with its flowers, adding background flowers and plants to highlight the foreground singular white bloom. It is a garden setting that evokes melancholy, not unlike a late afternoon stroll as the sun sets. Meantime, the Atlanta is more provocative. The deep, dark blue contrasts with the pink flowers rendered in gradient shades from light to dark hues. These are but three collections that exhibit the Salisbury elegance.
Salisbury is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Magnificent piece of glass

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:30:15 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

The Pallas Punchbowl crystal by John Connolly is poetry in glass. At every level, on every inch, the crystal piece is expressed in grand details. It is part of Waterford Crystal’s annual leeway that allows the designers to produce their signature masterpiece. John Connolly didn’t disappoint. His Pallas Punchbowl is celebrated as one of the Waterford signature collections, a must-have for the most sophisticated buyers. Fancy the impression that it gives, nothing short of a bejeweled papal crown. From the base to the stem, to its body and the rim, the Pallas Punchbowl are crisscrossed with various patterns that flow smoothly in different directions and give way seamlessly to the next batch of patterns. The patterns are more appreciated once light and liquid touch the glass: a luminous explosion is created, highlighting the artist’s high-level workmanship.
Waterford Crystal is available at Schiffman's in Friendly Center.

Frame of beauty

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:25 AM in The 925 (32)

Silver is beautiful in the raw but it is soft. Mix copper with precisely 0.925 silver and you get a sterling silver used for jewelries and dining sets. But The 925 Inc., makers of sterling silver picture frames and silver artworks, doesn’t stop at this; they use 24-karat platinum electro-plating to make their sterling silver pieces tarnish-resistant. Beyond material strength and durability, the design makes The 925 Inc. sterling silver frames impressive. The Windsor frame exhibits detailed etchings that may dangerously attract more attention than the photo it is showing. The Victorian Heart frame has the royal touch and grandeur of the era. Meanwhile, the Neoclassical frame reflects an imperial feel inspired by ancient Roman art. Not to be outdone, the Versailles frame is classic French bourgeois. The 925 Inc. offers more sterling silver picture frames at wholesale purchase.
The 925 is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Fish tales

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Anna Weatherley (31)

Anna Weatherley fish natural dinnerware goldIt is one of those fishy ideas that get your attention. No, nothing sinister about it, but literally fishes are beautifully rendered on an Anna Weatherley hand-painted porcelain set. We can’t escape the depth of the fishes’ colors; they can give aquarium fishes a run for their money. It is a feast of various fishes caught in their natural beauty, such as the grouper look-alike flashing its aquamarine blue and yellow-orange to golden scales. Or another fish bragging its silvery body highlighted by its deep maroon tail. Yet one more that is unabashedly pink, which may even be a male. Anna Weatherley artists seem to have enjoyed creating this dinnerware line, such that buying one will likely make you want to complete the whole set. The plates are rimmed in gold and made from fine porcelain.

The Thread of Gold

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Wellendorff (40)

One of the most eccentric characteristics of a Wellendorff jewelry is the craftsmanship in transforming a golden stone into a piece of art. The art of gold threading is a tedious process that requires patience, expertise and creativity to produce jewelry pieces with threaded gold.

A creation that will mesmerize people into the reality that such golden creations are only created at Wellendorff!

A masterpiece of golden rings revolving intricately, analogous to a dance of synchronicity and balance. Wellendorff jewelry creations are a balance of complex beauty and art.

Elvis Presley's Romance with the Great

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:00:00 AM in Tissot (39)

During the turbulent years when the emerging pop culture was still in its infancy, people had been struggling to discover the true essence of their life.

Art snob

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:20:00 AM in Annieglass (34)

I used to date an art collector. I knew she had the trappings of art snobbery, the thing that makes “them” genius separate from the mortals like me, whose first and last encounter with art dates back to first grade. Call it serendipity, but one conversation went to art glass; she was probably setting me up for an easy surrender. Pity her, I remembered my mother’s Annieglass collection, those shining bluish limited editions that seem to create their own glow. I delved into specifics—to her surprise—delicately detailing the handmade glass sculpting of this Annieglass clam shell and mini splash bowl that my mum owns. Naturally, she knows Annieglass, as anyone with serious appreciation of art glass. I told her those items were uniquely signed and numbered and that Annieglass artists are renowned for creating glass that seems to natural flow like water. She nodded in agreement. I, in the meantime, sat there contented in winning over the discussion.
Annieglass is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.

Warning: May Cause Psychological Imbalance

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Arte Italica (31)

There is no exact science about it, but fixation is a general psychological state that characterizes a person’s obsession about something. The science out of the way, be warned that looking at the Arte Italica Animale collection may trigger the tendency to obsess over trivial things. Animal figurines in pewter as accent to your barware collection for example. You can collect these detailed fine pewter figurines as pilsner glass tops, ice bucket holders, wine cork stoppers or decanter accents. The boar, stag, ram, bull and bear are revered in their proud heads with the sole intent of grabbing your attention for long periods of time. It is not a surprise that collectors have been found to drink liquor not for the alcohol, but to enjoy seeing and holding these fine pewter-over-fine-glass pieces of Arte Italica. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you.
Arte Italica is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Secret garden

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

I bought a wide range of Beatriz Ball Garden set recently and put them alongside each other on a porch table in my little garden of bougainvilleas and roses. Looking at them in that quiet corner, I was thrown back to my childhood when I used to imagine our backyard teeming with bushes as a secret garden. It had benches where I’d sit and read a book in my peace, autumn leaves browning under my feet. Perhaps it’s the stillness yet flowing motion of the Beatriz Ball piece, such as the Olivia long leaf or the curved garden leaf that set my memories in motion. The finesse of the metal sculpture seems frozen in time, like the leaf server and cabbage bowl have been there in my porch since childhood waiting for my return. I thought I’ve never left; that child in the secret garden enjoying her imagined world is there all along inside me. Call it the Beatriz effect. I call it introspection, and I like it.
Beatriz Ball is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Deal closed

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Boardman Silversmiths (31)

I am a hedge fund manager, and I have this little silly trick that has helped me convince some of my wealthy neighbors to invest in me. I will invite them to my house over a tea or coffee. My house is quite pricey and I let them see my wealth: the pool, the furniture, the car. But this is nothing new to them. After all, they’re all rich, even richer than I at times. In hedge investment, I will tell them as they enjoy a cup of tea in my garden, the devil is in the details. It’s not only a matter of targeting the best promising companies; more effectively, it is better to target the supply chain of these companies. Similarly, I’ll tell them, investing doesn’t stop at buying a big house. Even the small things count. Then I’ll point to the cup their holding and tea pot on my set: a Boardman Silversmiths. You can even invest in these “little” things as cups and saucers, pointing out that Boardman Silversmiths can be a collectible, an heirloom, that creates value over time. That’s the real skill of a hedge fund manager, I’ll tell them, the ability to see value in the tiniest details.  Deal closed.

Graciously from Slane

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:10:00 AM in Slane (32)

What more can we think of when we talk about sisters Heath and Landon Slane? Well, aside from they are queens of sterling silver jewelry, we cannot deny the fact that they are also fond (and fans) of bees.

Above All Else, the Oro

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:00:40 AM in Roberto Coin (43)

Gold as always, is one of the most precious metals on earth. It was a symbol of power and wealth for the ancient civilizations such as Persia, Egypt and China. It was a universal medium of trade and the more a kingdom or empire had gold in its treasury, the greater influence it has not only on its people but also to other empires or kingdoms. But even since time immemorial, gold has been known to be a metal used in jewelry. As a descendant of our great ancestors, Roberto Coin knows just how to mold luxury on such a precious metal to become fine jewelry. Once again, gold will be the symbol of luxury as Roberto Coin unfolds another great classic in his Oro Classic collection.

Thank you, art

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Casafina (31)

“It’s a rooster,” I said. My wife was showing me a Casafina dish server. “It’s high-grade Portuguese stoneware,” she countered, putting my lack of sophistication in place and her eyebrows meeting each other. Of course, even in the vegetative state of my I.Q. about ceramics, I could see the Casafina Rooster Dish piece is quality made, not the kind you see in the supermarket. I just couldn’t express it and I went literal. I must admit the rooster is pretty detailed. “It reflects a Van Goghnisque style,” I said as a mighty comeback. I remember my art class, at least, and I can appreciate the Casafina rooster rendition truly can level off with a Van Gogh painting. The swirling bluish tones, the fluidity of the whole thing. “Glad you like it,” my wife said. Glad I love art, I thought, saving me from my wife’s wrath.
Casafina is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Are you finding it hard to get back your sensual self? There may be a better way than seeking a sex therapist. Try Couzon. Yes, the stainless steel master of high-end tableware may bring sensuality back in you. Just looking at the slender, delicately crafted lines and the bottomless grey gleam of the Cocoon plate, or the smooth yet hard and solid surface of the spoon and fork, may restart your inner engine. Touch the Couzon lines, the seamless flow of the surface, its unblemished finish, the fluidity of the design, and passion is set on fire. The Atlante, the Boheme, the Ondee, the Theoreme…Couzon is teasing you, and all you do is surrender the inhibition. Not that we encourage you to do this with guests. Kids may be watching, you know.

Under the sea

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Gien (34)

“The seaweed is always greener…,” my kid would start singing Under the Sea from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. She would belt out the happy tune every breakfast since I replaced the plates with the Gien Ocean plates. I love the sea creature theme and the rich colors that give them life. Of course its Gien ceramics and I don’t mind spending an extra for the added value in quality and shelf life. Nonetheless, the happy ambiance that this Gien collection gives off made me choose to bring the sea creature plates home. It is a playground of crab, clam shell, starfish and fan corals every breakfast. The whole set, admittedly, reminds me of that singing hermit crab backed by the musical chorale set of all things under the sea. I can’t get enough of enjoying staring at these Gien plates and hear my daughter sing every morning.
Gien is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

What is it for?

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Empire Silver Co (31)

Why would I give someone a dumb bell? I thought. It is one of those gifts that can elicit more than appreciation from the recipient. It is sure to invite curiosity and some dreaded questions. I hope she won’t ask me what the Empire Silver sterling dumb bell set is all about. I have no clue, too. Should it be used to literally tone the triceps? Or is it meant as a display? But I feel giving it makes a statement about my sophistication on gift-giving. Hey, it’s an Empire Silver, the same manufacturer of quality sterling silver and pewter that have graced mansions and palaces, I suppose. The idea of giving the sterling dumb bell, of giving something mundane a royal touch (it’s a sterling, after all, an Empire Silver sterling if I may add), tells me it is a uniquely thought gift. One that will impress her and, hopefully, enough to keep her from asking, “What’s it for?”
Empire Silver is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro

Interior 101

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Haviland (31)

Not sure how to start your interior? Start with a Haviland crystal and work everything around it, taking note of the law of contrasts and complements. The key to interior design is to make every element counts. You can have the most grandeur living set, but it may result in clutter; or the barest interior and you get a bland space. The contrast should be balanced and it is the designer’s job to strike a style that is neither overdone nor underachieving. One technique is to use display items like Haviland crystal, which can be used across a broad cross-section of interior. The Aigle crystal figurine, for example, complements a minimalist interior as it can add a contrast to a room filled with precious metal ware and luxurious ceramics. The Haviland Aigle crystal in translucent or colored glass can be a centerpiece, an accent or a subtle contrast. The challenge for the designer is to understand how each item relates to each other.
Haviland is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.


Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Grainger McKoy (37)

I have been a fan of Grainger McKoy wood since the first time I came across one. The fluidity of motion does not fail to impress even the clueless, and Grainger McKoy has a slew of birds in flight captured in various actions—a dogfight with a snake and a mother feeding her baby are my favorites. But it is the Recovery Stroke piece that, to me, showcases the Grainger McKoy artist’s true genius. The feathers are well studied and sculpted; you can sense each one grasping the invisible wind to create lift. The tendon is tensed suggesting the bird is using more power than usual to adjust its bearing. Not the least, the color in monochromatic brown achieves depth without needing other colors. I know my art, and when an artist can tell his or her story in the barest elements, a piece of wing than a whole group of flying birds, for instance, that’s genius.

Not dumb at all

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:45:00 PM in Herend (42)

Bunnies are cute. Bears are adorable. Cats and dogs are favorites. But camels for porcelain figurines? It is hard to imagine a grass-chewing, sluggish, dumb-faced mammal making the rounds to be included in the Herend hand-painted porcelain figurine line. Yet give it to the Herend artists, the Herend camel figurines are lovely. Forget worn-out camel shoes; the Herend camel walks in golden feet.  Take away the used and tattered camel seat covers you imagine on a crowded Cairo street; this porcelain camel chimes as it walks (figuratively) with a royal blanket sewn with golden bells around the cover. Even the body disabuses the rough, rugged, smelly camel skin; our Herend camel is tattooed with elegant patterns that will shame the palace elephants of the Rajah. These camels come in different colors, too: raspberry, butterscotch and chocolate, among others. Sounds appetizing, right?

Cheap is dangerous

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:35 PM in Juliska (36)

At the risk of being branded a sexist, I suggest to all men to give their women the fine stoneware ceramics of Juliska for dinner set. In case you get into a physical argument with her, and in her rage she thinks of hurling plates your way (men can be victims of domestic violence, you know), she’ll think twice of throwing that Juliska in her hands. C’mon, will she really dare destroy those classic lines of the Juliska dinnerware in soft color tones that add elegance to the dining set? In ice blue, pistachio green, whitewash and cappuccino brown, the Juliska stoneware collection can make one dreamy in Romanesque charm even in the middle of a fiery tempest. My unabashed prediction is that she’ll likely to put the Juliska ceramic down. And cast her eye on that made-in-China flower pot you bought from the grocery last year. Be cheap at your own peril.

The Blooming Magnolia

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:10 AM in Mikimoto (45)

It was Kokichi Mikimoto who started the history. From that time, the jewelry industry entered a new dawn to welcome a brighter day everyday as the history lives on one hundred and twenty years since. Everything from Mikimoto is a winning piece to add in every woman’s pearl collection. Surely, the company doesn’t really need much advertisement because by the looks of its pearls, anyone will just fall in love with them in an instant. Introducing Mikimoto Regalia, a 13-piece range of one-of-a-kind bracelets, earrings and necklaces divided into four themes - Fuchsia, Magnolia, Baroque and Cape Gooseberry - each of the 13 pieces sets various types of pearl into white gold and diamond surrounds, ranging from the daintily pretty to the double-take-worthy spectacular. The Magnolia ring, however, is a favorite, a glowing white South Sea cultured pearl the size of a Malteser nestled in white gold and diamond petals. Created for esteemed women of nobility, Mikimoto designers spent two years exploring the designs and creating the pieces of Mikimoto Regalia.

Joys of life

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Lladro (32)

The soft pastel colors of a Lladro figurine define much of the hand-crafted porcelain maker, but its plain white sculptures are equally impressive. The absence of color or a limited amount of it in its Matte Sculptures line, in fact, highlights the detailed craftsmanship of the Lladro artist. A mother and child are caught in a casual poise, nothing dramatic save for the artistry of creating an art out of a mundane reality. Another child poses in front of the camera; yes, it makes you feel that the figurine is alive and actually looking at a photographer. The Essence of Life, which depicts a couple and their newborn child, is dramatic, highlighting the Lladro artist’s sensitivity to life. The Matte Sculptures line celebrates the family, the child, the couple and everything about the little joys of life captured in a Lladro hand-crafted fine porcelain.
Lladro is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Blame it on beer

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Kosta Boda (30)

Ever have a friend you like and hope to level up the relationship to more intimacy? The Kosta Boda Friendship stemware collection may be key. Yes, it celebrates friendship in stunning design and art glass craftsmanship, but the whole ambiance is to express your deeper feelings of, well, friendship, and hopefully she gets the hint. Hearts are etched; and “you” and “me” are liberally applied across the stemware line of beer glasses. It’s beer not wine or champagne, so you keep the friendship agenda without closing the window of romance especially when the alcohol kicks in. You have a wide array of suggestive etches. The owl with a rose keeps the relationship at arm’s length. The hugging fishes keep it a little bit closer. A man and a woman intimately face to face drives home your point. In case she wants to keep the friendship and berates you for even considering something more intimate, blame it on the beer to save face.

Fruity ideas

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Michael Aram (36)

Make them a centrepiece, an accent, even a utilitarian bowl for desserts or side dishes. The Michael Aram Fruit creations are anything but ordinary; they span a whole range of artistry from metal crafting to sculpting and to plating. The high-level metalwork is evident. The fruits, mainly apples and pears, assume their natural curves and their leaves hang over them in a real-life poise that is undisturbed by any wind. The fruit sculptures are in oxidized bronze and nickel plate and can be gold plated. You can use the Apple Honey Pot with Spoon as a salad dish or the Apple Ornament as an added charm to your dinner table. The Apple Plate, meantime, is perfect for serving candies, finger food or appetizers. Their uses are endless and limited only by your imagination.

Supporting actor is the lead character

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Mottahedeh (32)

Sometimes the support takes the lead. Like some of the Mottahedeh items. Take the cup and saucer stand. It is Mottahedeh brass in all gleaming flair and long-lasting strength designed to display your collectible cup and saucer. Only that the stand may  take all the attention instead of the things it is supposed to showcase. The slender lines of the brass stand and its seemingly eternal shine are hard not to notice.  The Grapevine wine coater is also dangerously attractive for the wine stem or the wine itself. The intricate rim with detailed engravings is an art worthy of its own exhibit. The silvery gleam is equally stunning, a perfect complement to the wine.  Lastly, the cake server with cut-outs is beautifully moulded with delicate twirling of the metal. Poor cake, the server takes the lead.
Mottahedeh is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.

The Christmas spirit is evident, but the piece can complement, too, and add a child-like spirit, to your interior throughout the year. Likewise, the Dawn of Hope lends a positive glow around the glass. The art awash  in pink hues, incidentally, is in observance of the fight against breast cancer. Part of the proceeds from this piece is donated to research against the disease.

Oriental art in porcelain

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Lladro (32)

Arguably, Lladro is most intricate and beautiful in its exquisite line of Chinese and Indian mystic figurines. The deep reds and blues of the Hindi Goddess Lakshmi highlight the intricate sculpting of the goddess, from her golden headdress to her gown that flows smoothly on contours. Her four hands are depicted in various actions, with one hand in an open palm and the other as if summoning peace to the onlooker. Similarly, the Chinese dragons are impressive with their detailed scales and their flaming eyes. Far from standing passively, the dragons stand in an attack poise, a threatening mouth ready to give a fiery breadth.  The Great Dragon is available in blue and golden or blue enamels. The Guardian Lioness is equally stunning in its body armour, strong stance and fiery tail. Lladro offers more Asian mystic-inspired fine porcelain figurines as a showcase of its mastery of craftsmanship.

Elbow macaroni

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Orange Howell (32)

Is it a flower or a snowflake? It is pasta. Or at least it is inspired by corallini, little shell-shaped elbow macaroni. The Orange Howell gold-plated shell ornament is testament to the designer’s mastery of executing a creative idea from an inspiration to the actual piece. The image of corallinis rendered to make a flower (or a sunflower, depends on your view) was submitted to Orange Howell to create the hand-cast lead-free pewter. The result is an impressive, almost look-alike, rendition of the elbow macaroni art into an Orange Howell jewelry piece down to the subtle folds and twists of the pasta. The ridges may appear in symmetrical patterns, but each ridge has its own movement and character. This detailed craftsmanship makes Orange Howell a sought-after designer and creator of jewelry pieces by high-end clients, such as Tiffany & Co., The Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans and The Four Seasons in Whistler.
Orange Howell  is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Playful parakeets

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Grainger McKoy (37)

The birds dive for a landing with their wings spread out and revealed in stunning details. The feathers change color from brownish to greyish in a smooth transition before abruptly giving way to a gradient of yellow and blue hues. It is the Grainger McKoy Carolina Parakeet, the 1992 masterpiece of Dan Lufkin who used basswood, metal, alabaster and oil paint. The parakeets’ heads glow in orange-yellowish light, their eyes set on something on the ground. Such is the skill of the Grainger McKoy artist; creating a non-present target through the eyes of his subjects, the parakeets. The birds glide on a soft wind, yet again unseen but felt by the eyes. The parakeets are stretched out apart far enough that creates an illusion of separate elements but bounded as one fine wood sculpture.
Grainger McKoy is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Fine china is already elegantly alluring at its raw core. With Philippe Deshoulieres, china is even made more elegant and impossibly classy.

The Irony of metal

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

Metal craft is an irony of art, pun intended. To be philosophical about it, it is bending a strong element (the metal) to your will (your desired artistic outcome), treating something strong like a soft material that you can easily carve into your art. Imagine what goes into the Beatriz Ball Croc salad servers. It is at once a metal art and sturdy dinnerware that will last for a lifetime. The croc pattern is impressively detailed, creating a mental trick on the metal's surface to lure you to imagine it is a croc's hide. The same tease is applied in both the salad spoon and fork's handle.The artists behind this Beatriz Ball work make sure you can feel the hide by looking at it, and you can feel fine metal once you touch it. Talk about irony.
Beatriz Ball is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Collectible or utilitarian

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Empire Silver Co (31)

You can't go wrong with a sterling silver gift. Even for a pewter giftware, you are surely to impress the recipient with an Empire Silver collectible pack. The beauty of giving an Empire Silver is not only because the pieces are made from finely crafted and designed silverware and pewter; the signature itself is testament to the value you place on the receiving party. Even an Empire Silver serving piece set is ideal for a valued executive or client, never mind that he or she is not into pastries. The set is designed to be utilitarian, but they are as well made as a collection set. The bread and butter plate, the grape shears, brides knife and cake server all serve their respective functions, or they nicely go inside a box set for display. As a collection set they add elegance and sophistication to the dining area.

Love your Couzon cutlery? There is more to fall for for this stainless steel master. Couzon also offers a wide range of tableware to mesmerize you with that trademark steel sexiness.Like the Cocoon salad set. The bowl is a feminine fortress, elegant, beautiful and seductive. It lays on the tabletop waiting for the action. The salad spoon and fork, strong and, we daresay, erect, gravitate to the chasm inside the fortress as you toss the greens and salad ingredients. The tossing vibrates and you feel the passion in the air as you reach for a bottle of dressing and slowly pour the oil to the salad. Such is the Couzon effect. The everyday bland activity is deceivingly turned to a most sensual action.

Poor duck

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:55 AM in Grainger McKoy (37)

You can almost hear the duck wails as it struggles out of the croker sack. Poor duck. Well, not really. It is a Grainger McKoy sculpture once again tricking your eyes. The duck cries for release. The web feet, beautifully shaped in detailed rubbery skin of a duck's, hang loose but powerless. The wings, crafted out of basswood and painted in details with oil, are almost feather-like. You know it is a Grainger McKoy art, yet still you are tempted to pluck out a feather. The story is a sad conclusion for the duck, all wrapped ready for the pan. Wait, it is just a wood, you remind yourself. Such is the power of a Grainger McKoy work, you can even feel for a hapless bird.
Grainger McKoy is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

This is accented by the red and blue colors of the parrot and the alluring pink of the flamingo in slender stillness or flight. Brewed coffee is made even more potent. Tea becomes more flavorful. At least in your mind as it wanders across the South American jungle of the Gien Cacao art.

The cachepots are available in various motifs and colors, with handles or in solid forms.

The detailed pattern is inescapably magnetic. It draws the eyes closer, tempting them to follow the elegant loops, corners and swirls. If Haviland is renowned for porcelain mastery, clearly, the Antheor, Bassora, Beauvallon, Colbert and many more of its porcelain line are the epitome of porcelain's high art. You sense a quiet amazement as you gasp for words to describe the gold and platinum rims of the plates. Colbert is exceptionally beautiful in gold and brown interlace. The combination of neutral colors, such as gold, brown and silver, has never been more vibrant as rendered in intricate and overlapping patterns and backdrops by Haviland.

The Gem of Innocence

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Mikimoto (45)

The Japanese culture of excellence had been among us for centuries. Their work ethics and discipline can be visually appreciated globally. Japanese products are considered to be of quality with remarkable workmanship. At no exception at all, Mikimoto, a pearl company since 1883 had been producing pearls of highest quality for purpose dependent on demand. A pearl is a product of time and relentless effort as exemplified in every Japanese cultural trait. The values of patience, precision and industry are the footholds of a Japanese pearl. A pearl symbolizes purity, honesty and innocence. Effusing symbolism and culture, a precious pearl is born. The Japanese are the perfect people in culturing pearls, with their inherent traits of patience and diligence. At Mikimoto, a single pearl is a work of art, patience and diligence. Its exuberance of purity manifest a sense of innocence of its truthfulness and honesty. Every pearl from Mikimoto is individually crafted to exude the perfect gift of purity. The gift of pearl enunciates an expression of honesty and purity. It is either reflective by the giver or the recipient, both are attributable to it. The play of symbolism in symbiosis is deeply entrenched in a Mikimoto Pearl.

It may be renowned for fine crystal and ceramics. But Juliska offers a dimension to its signature: beautifully woven and designed linens.

Fashion in glass

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Kosta Boda (30)

Art glass is made perfect in the Kosta Boda Catwalk collection. Designed by Kjell Engman, Catwalk offers a "see-through" look at the world of fashion. The finishing exhibits rough patterns that are evenly distributed; the result is an alluring stone effect that glows from within. The palette seems to violate basic color tennets. The artist deftly combines neutral colors to an impressive mix, such as brown on black or black and white. Primary colors are also mixed to create a spontaneous feel, the blue and red achieving a depth in hue transitions. As with any Kosta Boda piece, the glass is elegant, masterfully shaped and the details are subtle, a hallmark of true art. The whole line is worth collecting, a rare display of art glass in posterity.

A Gift of Celebration

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:20:00 AM in Lladro (32)

Marriages are made more memorable and elegant with a Lladro high-porcelain wedding figurine. It is a gift that showcases the giver’s sincere celebration for the couple, not the least a wish that matches a Lladro porcelain designed and made to last for a lifetime.  The wedding figurines capture the tender passion of the newlyweds in high-definition work of sculpture. The gown flows naturally along the bride’s contour as the groom is naturally shown pressing his body against his woman of dreams. The couple’s lips are teasingly portrayed in the act of gravitating towards each other. The poise—the groom carrying his lady or standing in front of each other—is perfectly set with a center of gravity that you can feel.  Their bodies are relaxed that makes you forget you are looking at hard porcelain. The gleaming figurines are unmistakably romantic, playful and elegant.
Lladro is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.
