Cheval d’Orient by Hermès

MINIATURIST PERSIAN FRESCOES COME TO LIFE read more...

Limonge porcelain with an allure that draws you directly into the silk road caravans resplendent in colours and equestrian motifs which acknowledge the high status that these beautiful creatures have always had in tradition worldwide. This iconic Cheval d’Orient dinnerware with its plates, bowls, tumblers, tea and coffee sets and serving plates is richly evocative of the rich textiles of the 15th century Persian Art resulting in a ceremonial pattern worth of an emperor. The joyful horses, draped in striking bright and pure colourings, gallop and fly with no wings in all their glory against the iridescent background which alternates white bare landscapes with multi coloured gilded hills.

Your guest will be stunned with the level of details and the extremely vivid array of colours present along the rims of each porcelain piece where the artist has managed to capture, through fine lines of hand painted and burnished gold and striped designs, the remarkable animation in the scenes. The majestic Arabian horses according to the typical Persian style are depicted sideways, individually or as part of a cavalcade, hence giving prominence to these fiery creatures unique features like the high tails, the large eyes, the short backs and arched necks. The superiority of this breed and its endurance perfectly reflects the characteristic of this refined tableware which will embellish your table settings for decades to come.
