19th Century Beauty at its Best

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

In an age of technology, where every home appliance is shiny with stainless finish, one-button automation, and minimalist no-nonsense, have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in a 19th century home? Where Indian, Japanese, and Chinese cultures merge with European flourish, 19th century homes would usually have stalwart gambrel roof, honey-colored floors, and furniture designed in adaptation of peculiar beauties found in nature, sometimes with gold finish that creates a touch of opulence. Richard Ginori, maker of exquisite and elegant porcelain, captures the 19th century beauty and glamor, with its Voliere Collection. Lovely and charming, the Voliere Collection is in Empire-shaped table, tea, and coffee sets; and presented in 12 different graphic subjects framed by floral patterns delicately highlighted by a pure gold contour. 
Other Richard Ginori pieces are available at Schiffman’s at Friendly Center.

Some dinning no-nos

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

Whenever we get invited for dinner at a friend's or office colleague's house, it pays to know not only what to do but also what to avoid doing, not only to save face but also to show respect to others and proper decorum. For instance, you should never begin partaking of your meal until the host gives the go-signal. Refrain from using your bread to dip into soups or mop sauces. Hold back audible eating noises like burping and slurping as they are disrespectful. Never talk with a full mouth--this is not only obnoxious to see, it may also choke you! Never spread to reach out across the table to reach for food or any items; it's better to politely ask for others nearby for some help. Not at any time should you pick your teeth or lick your fingers (unless you're eating beef ribs or chicken legs). Finally, even if you think your cooking is far better than your hosts, never ever offer your criticism. Instead, always show some compliments for the food, place and effort, especially when your hosts have a Richard Ginori, which is hands-down one of the biggest names in fine porcelain tableware, decorative accessories, and much more.

Your favorite Ginori dinnerware collection?

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:35:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

If we go by popularity the Antico Doccia is an easy favorite among all Richard Ginori creations. The purity of this collection can easily match any interior décor theme, perhaps, explaining why many find it attractive. It’s got a whole range of dining items, from plates (bread, dinner, soup) to bowls (pasta, salad, fruit), and platters (oval fish, oval deep, oval pickle) to cups, saucers, teapots, and pitchers. Combining all these items creates a continuous pure white look that can easily provide a neutral break to a single or multiple colored backdrop. Imagine lining up the Antico Doccia against rainbow-inspired wallpaper or against a matte blue or green, or on top of an intricately woven lace or inside an old oak wood cabinet. However you place these dining items, they tend to heighten your interior inspiration.

A Plate of History

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

Did you know that when you buy a Richard Ginori you’re buying a piece of history? The high-porcelain dinnerware maker started during the Renaissance in 1735 at the heart of European creative center, Florence. Marquis Carlo Andrea Ginori founded the factory that would make artistic porcelain for Europe’s aristocracy including royal families. Fast forward to 1889, the Ginori company was already operating fifteen kilns and its operations manned by 1,200 employees. It would soon merge with the Milanese ceramics manufacturer owned by Augusto Richard; thus, the Richard Ginori signature was born. Today, Richard Ginori is among the largest signature porcelain and ceramics manufacturer in the world, producing exquisite styles like the Antico Doccia, Malachite, Toscana, Diagono, Duchessa and Galatea. Next time you sit your guests to a dinner at home, charm them with their plates’ history.

Classical Beauty

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

A Richard Ginori porcelain creation is a manifestation of conventional and conservative art in pottery. Utilizing doccia porcelain, a durable type of pottery since the mid century, it allows one to create porcelain pieces according to specific discretions. However, aside from its durability, what make it more contrasting are the expressive designs on the porcelain itself. The convergence of modern art and ancient technology extracts interest among the elite that usually patronize products that are exclusive created for people of discriminating taste. The intricate etchings on the porcelain are architectural marvels that are modified according to demand and discretion. Owning an original doccia porcelain from Richard Ginori  is just experiencing a poignant play of historical poise and elegance.

Classic Art in Pottery

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:15:00 PM in Richard Ginori (32)

A doccia porcelain is a common pottery in the mid century of the 1700s until it was perfected by a certain Italian named Richard Ginori. A doccia porcelain is usually soft until kaolin was introduce to harden the porcelains in kiln factories. That typical creation was a common household utensil until the present day. It has converged with modern ideas and created Richard Ginori quality doccia porcelain with its intricate designs and architectural modifications. It has blended beautifully for a modern thirst for exquisite art in pottery. A Richard Ginori porcelain is a classical beauty portrayed in relevance for its use and decoration.

Porcelain quality

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

Majolica is tin-glazed pottery that Richard Ginori plays to the fullest to give porcelain a run for its money. Take the Richard Ginori Duchessa line, which exhibits the same elegance and sturdiness in all ivory whiteness. The “tink” is evident and the classic lines that run across the rims, edges and handles of the Duchessa dinnerware collection add an exquisite appeal to your table. Whether you are entertaining guests for dinner or enjoying a tea break under a late afternoon sun, the Richard Ginori Duchessa items lend a graceful ambiance. The golden rim runs across the plates, bowls, cups, tea pots, platters, bowls and saucers. This feature adds a royal feel as it makes the Duchessa pieces stronger and more resistant to chips and breaks.

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.

Served in a pretty plate

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

Richard Ginori majolica dinnerware is artistic as it is utilitarian. Across a full range of Richard Ginori’s collections is the dinner plate, the main star among the items. Richard Ginori’s charger plates are deceivingly simple, but you sense a deep passion to create them in subtle beauty. The simple monochromatic designs range from gold to black, light blue to green and fiery orange to feminine pink. The basic theme is undeniable, but it only highlights the artistry of Richard Ginori. As an offshoot, the designer dinnerware also features plates with subtle illustrations in singular colors like the Galli Rossi line. Orange and white hues come into play to create a serene picture of two birds enjoying a morning bliss under a tree, whose leaves flow with the wind.

The Laveno line

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

Too many Richard Ginori collections to choose from? How about starting with the Laveno line. Variedly themed and exhibiting the same Richard Ginori trademark of high-quality tin-glazed ceramics, Laveno comes in three flavors:  Blue Sponge, Folkware and White.  Blue Sponge is awash in patterns that rim the items, reminiscent of a microscopic look at a breathing sponge. The sea blue adds to the oceanic breezy touch to the theme. Folkware is more playful and spontaneous and liberally uses various patterns from floral to leafy strokes. The colors are confidently interlaced, such as deep purple with a subdued apple green, and the result is surprisingly complementary. Meantime, the White line is classic in simplicity. All three Laveno themes by Richard Ginori include vegetable dish, luncheon plate, salad and dessert plate and soup plate.

Simply elegant or elegantly simple?

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:35 AM in Richard Ginori (32)

Mention artistic tin-glazed pottery and a Richard Ginori piece comes to mind. Like its Eclissi Platinum collection. There is an Art Nouveau feel that runs across its coffee cups and saucers, plates and platters and sugar bowls and milk jars. The glazed dinnerware is deceivingly simple, but it’s a product of Richard Ginori craftsmanship whose inspiration dates back to the Renaissance ceramic-making tradition. An Eclissi platinum item is impressively delicate, matching the thinness and “vulnerability” look of fine china.  The rims are platinum-plated to add strength and accent. It is a classy touch to a morning set, an afternoon break or a quiet dinner. The Eclissi line is also available in white palette, which exudes a Romanesque feel to its collection of cups, plates, saucers, servers and bowls.

Roman cinematic art

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

The crisscrossing “pencil” sketch marks across the Richard Ginori plate is hard to ignore. They run liberally across the majolica plate, glazed and delicately handcrafted in the famous Richard Ginori tradition. It seems the pencil marks are let loose to create wanton circles in gray hues and their complementing negatives. This is the Diagono Sketch art, Richard Ginori at its Roman cinematic flair. The grayscale—no other colors are used—doesn’t limit the Diagono line; in fact, it elevates the design into classic art with borrowed touches of cubism, perhaps. It is Richard Ginori at its Italian panache. The Diagono Sketch comes in coffee cup set and salad bowl set.

An Artist's playground

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

There is a happy feel in collecting Richard Ginori mugs. Perhaps because of the colorful explosion in the design, or the playful, stylistic illustrations. The house on a snowy night exudes an ironic warmth. A window by a coffee table on a washed gradient of blue or green is child-like without being childish. A pencil-like art of crawling vine with the valley as a backdrop radiates a hopeful early morning. The big, bold polka dot design is simple, yet not simplistic. There is also a cabaret-theme typeface that evokes a tease without mocking one’s sensibilities. The mugs’ design is even more accentuated when put alongside each other, a collector’s playground of Richard Ginori artwork rendered in a utilitarian canvas.

A Beam of sunlight into your dining room

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

There is a playful charm in Richard Ginori’s Antico Doccia porcelain set. Italian fruits are rendered delicately on Doccia plates, cups, saucers, tea pots, bowls, and, yes, fruit stands. The Richard Ginori Doccia collection is as entertaining as elegant to collect, a topical magnet for guests. The subtle shades and transitions of fruit colors add depth to the design, and the foreground green palette is carefully strewn underneath the accents. The result is a happy mix of sun-ripe fruits that add tease to your dinner experience. Collecting all of the Doccia Italian fruit items is like allowing a beam of sunlight to push through the roof and lighten up the dreary corner of your dining room.

Trappings That Elegance Does Not Need

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Richard Ginori (32)


Elegance is not all about grandiose trimmings. Sometimes, less is really more and none is much. World-renowned porcelain maker, Richard Ginori, is a seasoned name when it comes to elaborate classic sculptures and dinnerware pieces. The brand’s expert artists and artisans in its Italian workshop carefully fashion its pieces by hand, whether that be a dainty tea cup or a rococo patterned collection.

The collection is like a woman with no make-up on, beautiful still with all her naturally attractive features even more noticeable. The concept makes the geometric shapes more manifest as the forms interplay harmoniously with each other. The collection is fresh, modern and chic, and a beautiful choice for contemporary settings.
