Follow the British Tradition With a Two Hundred-Year History

Afternoon tea has been an elegant and originally aristocratic British custom since the early 1800s. This is a perfect moment to serve guests at a bridal shower, wedding reception, graduation party or afternoon garden party.

Origin of the Tea tradition

They say it all started with Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who is believed to have started taking tea and a light afternoon snack in private in her boudoir to hold out during the long time between breakfast and dinner. Later on she started inviting a few friends to join her for a cup of tea, a light snack and an afternoon walk. This ritual became so popular that it was picked up by other hostesses, and eventually serving an exquisite afternoon tea became not only a respectable entertainment, but also a fashionable custom of London’s aristocratic society.

    Medusa – Ikarus, one of the first dinnerware collections of “Rosenthal meets Versace”, launched in 1993, mirrors the matchless rich, colour intensive world of Versace.
    The emblematic Versace pattern featuring the glorious gold coloured central Medusa head has a new contemporary look.
    The new form lends excitement to this classic pattern.
    Beautiful detail and vibrant colour of the expressive baroque ornaments make this a true must have.
    The pulsating brilliance of the deep red, the elegance of the black and the magnificence of the gold: a colour spectrum which dominates the Medusa collection.
    The collection was Designed by Paul Wunderlich a German internationally known lithographic and object surrealist artist.
    His works are characterised by magic and mysticism and by the use of precious materials such as porcelain.
    Wunderlich had been working for Rosenthal since 1978.
    According to ancient myths Medusa was one of the three Gorgons which in Greek mythology were sea monsters with gold wings, snakes for hair, and turned anyone who looked directly at them to stone.
    The three sisters represented perversion in its three individual forms: intellectual, sexual and moral.
    Medusa’s snake hair locks were a punishment from Athena.
    The once extremely beautiful mortal was punished by Athena with a hideous appearance and loathsome snakes for having been raped in Athena’s temple by Poseidon.
    Gianni Versace chose this Greek mythological figure as his luxurious logo because she made people fall in love with her and they had no way back.
    He hoped his Maison would have the same seductive effect on people.
    Indeed the sumptuous Medusa head is the protagonist of many Versace collections in different rich colours and refined details making them unique and highly desirable among Versace cult followers.

Enjoy tea with a piece of cake!

It is a little known fact, but after its introduction to Europe in the 17th century tea was also tremendously popular in France among the aristocracy.

Today it remains a lovely tradition for some people in the UK, although usually it’s just a simple cream tea or tea with a slice of cake or some biscuits instead of the original elegant, three-course service.
