Vintage Dorothy Thorpe Rare Camellia Pattern 42Pc


Posted on Sat Aug 18 2018

This is an early & incredibly scarce group of tableware china by the genteel Amazon of 20C Industrial Modernist design, Dorothy C Thorpe. Milk white color w/high gloss glaze balance the lush floral camellia form & embossed decoration to utterly chic, minimalist result. As a group, this superb tableware service is a quietly gorgeous example of artful industrial design for everyday living-by a very noteworthy USA designer/producer. Versatility is designed into this pattern, as it sets beautifully of itself, and also in concert with a wide range of accent tablewares; lotus,clear, solids+++. While Thorpe is better known for her silver & gold rimmed glassware & 'spiraled & knotted lucite' functional decor, this special group is a 20C collector's dream. Designed & produced early in Thorpe's California production purview, it was produced in very limited quantity, is unused/as new, is wonderfully marked- and seldom comes to market; if ever, not in this condition & quantity. 42 Pcs in total, which includes 9 full settings +additional pieces, as follows: Nine 10.5" Dinner Plates, Nine 7.5" Salad Plates Twelve 5.5" Dessert/B&Butter Dishes Six 4.5" Cups Six 5.5" Saucers Free PickUp/Convenient Local MeetUp Local Delivery Available Shipping quotes upon request- based on buyer location & delivery preference
