They flit lightly over white porcelain – flowers with eyes, plants with whiskers, seahorses, angels and devils, all created by the fashion designer Orazio Stasi for the Arcadia collection by Ginori 1735. These asymmetrical compositions remind us of the fruit and flower decorations of the late 1700s, while the ‘total gold’ decoration that embellishes the place markers and fruit plates with colorful textures (in tones of black, pink and aquamarine) links back to the ancient art of agate burnishing. The Arcadia collection is composed of 24 table, tea and coffee items. The decoration is a decal in many colors applied by hand, while the outer border is made with the threading technique.
