Enchanted, I'm sure



The very sophisticated magic of childhood, immortalized.



Tree houses. Secret gardens. Indian realms. Deep forests full of mysterious startlers.



A dream world, as great as any tea party Alice might have imagined.



On cream porcelain with inspirations culled from the sepia engravings of François Houtin.

The twenty-one piece service set, by La Table D’Hermès will be available to your inner child this spring.

I gasped out loud when I saw this. It is beautiful. And would so totally match my house (probably not the best way to select china but at least I'm honest!). Marija

Funny, we are down in Florida, and I have been taking images like those, just palms and branches entering like celebrities. I love your enchanted world.

I have so many childhood memories stored in the designs and details of porcelain. These are so whimsical and magical...perfect for day dreaming and tea!

Ah, yes. Somehow the china of my childhood. My grandfather had a piece of land through which a stream ran and flanked, in the summertime, by drifts of bluebells. In my memory the trees are as high as redwoods and the bluebells as scented as the hyacinths on the table by me as I write. In my solitary, but not unhappy, way I used to make small houses of twigs at the feet of those trees - fairy houses, I suppose.

I've never been one for much whimsy, but I have to say, I find these delightful.
