Vintage Dorothy Thorpe Rare Camellia Pattern 42Pc

Certified Price







Posted on April 27, 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.

Nine 10.5" Dinner Plates,
Nine 7.5" Salad Plates
Twelve 5.5" Dessert/B&Butter Dishes
