The Germans have been known for their great talents in engineering, science, culture and the arts. And the nation has been represented well in many fields. But in the world of fine jewelry, the German drive for rigor, beauty and excellence can only be represented by one brand and that brand is Wellendorff. Some say that Wellendorff pieces are purely magical. Sure they darn are but that would leave an unfortunate after-thought for other people as it negates the talent and the skills that puts a piece together. Every Wellendorff piece is made to such a degree of perfection that it is just almost simply magical. A person who has tried on a Wellendorff piece would know what this means; what magic means.

One of the Best Makers of Art for the Table

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Annieglass (34)

For Annieglass, it was the Roman Antique that did it. This Roman Antique is a plate of thick class that has widely painted rim of pure gold. It was in the year 1983 that this innovative beautiful piece captured the fancy of the discerning. It is the company’s and the designer’s original tour de force that made it as an icon of American sensibility, artistic talents and innovation. But that didn’t stop there for Annieglass. In 2006, the company was honored by the Smithsonian American Museum by selecting two sculptural pieces as part of its permanent collection – a great achievement to honor the hard work and talent that the founder and the company had put in their designs and pieces since their inception in 1983.

But hey, what would come out wrong if these seemingly normal tools can be made beautiful and artisanal? Well, this was maybe the same question that the people of the Old World asked before making them such. If you find all the good in that and want to enjoy artisanal tableware, glassware, barware and home décor, look for Arte Italica to soothe your cravings. Arte Italica boasts of many collections that take their inspiration from the Old World. Arte Italica’s mission is to put Old World splendor into our homes.
