DESCRIPTION

The reflection of jet-black glazed Limoges porcelain trimmed with a mirror-polished sterling silver ribbon is an elegant tabletop collection by Puiforcat offering an elegant and complimentary contrast with the white porcelain Cercle d’argent collection of fourth generation, Jean Elysée Puiforcat.

The silver trim is a flat disc of silver that is folded and meticulously bent over the porcelain. Although purely decorative today, porcelain's trimming details came around during the Renaissance for a function. The silversmith would add a trim of precious metal around the porcelain pieces to protect them from chipping or being damaged as the Kings and aristocrats of the time would often travel from castle to castle with caravans of belongings.
