Beholden to heritage

An homage to hospitality

A propos savoir-vivre

The French understand as no other nation does how to care for their cultural and culinary heritage. Already at meals at school, attention is paid to style and etiquette. A three-course menu instead of noodles with tomato sauce is part of bon ton and even the smallest children learn how to consciously enjoy their meals. So why not take the family tableware out of the cupboard more often? 

Weddings, anniversaries or final examinations passed are special high points, which introduce a new life phase and are extensively celebrated. Rare moments in which family and friends gather together and eat, talk and laugh together. The dinner table, lovingly and discerningly set, moves to the focus of the event and is a central meeting point for all. 

Retro is right on top, with flowers with no use-by date and masterly palatial scenography. Because your eye is also “eating”: sumptuous dishes, drawn from good old family traditions – in a modern interpretation – belong to a festively set table.  Combined with contemporary elements, Nan’s porcelain moves into a new light and is reminiscent of a baroque still life. With childhood before your eyes and the future in view, porcelain builds the bridge between various generations.   

Classic porcelain goes back to what has been tried and tested. It unites timeless elegance with the French savoir-vivre and makes you feel like indulging yourself. 

A renaissance of values

Time and again, industrial artists have let themselves be driven by historic buildings from classic Weimar. Weimar Porzellan was inspired by the rococo period for this antique porcelain shape.

Château is an homage to the hospitable Duchess Anna Amalia, in whose small palace Tiefurt a brilliant circle of friends gathered for buoyant table talk. The love of pleasure and sensuous pleasures of this time still linger on today in the shape of Château.
