By: Sanjeevkumar

Elegant porcelain Rosenthal miniature gold gilded coffee pot designed by Paul Wunderlich with thedecoration designed by the late Gianni Versace. This item is probably asalesman sample or display piece. The Rosenthal pattern by Versace is "LesTresors de la Mer" which translates to Treasures of the Sea. The shape isknown as "Ikarus" and is part of the Rosenthal Studio Line.

The Versace porcelain designer, Paul Wunderlich, was born inBerlin in 1927. He gave up a successful career as a professor of art to pursuehis own talents. Although he still lives and works in Hamburg, his exhibits andtravels abroad have brought Wunderlich international acclaim. Wunderlich'sdesigns are influenced by mysticism and most are characterized by the use ofprecious metals and rare materials. He has been a designer for Rosenthal since1978. His works show how light porcelain is and what shapes can be created byhis steeply curved handles.

This excellent example has a wing detailed gold gildedfinial. The shape created here seems well suited to the decoration which Giannidesigned. Ann Kerr wrote in her book, Rosenthal Excellence For All Times,Treasures of the Sea suggests Mediterranean waters, the scent of sea breezes,blue skies. Sea creatures, mythic and actual appear on different items as ifcast up by the tides.

The Versace decoration is very Italian, very mysterious,very wonderful. Gianni Versace (original spelling), Italian by birth butinternationally claimed by the fashion design and theatrical worlds brought luxuryto the Rosenthal family of excellence. His details are sumptuous, intricate andinvolved, his colors so important, so clearly ones which he seemed to own.Colorful in life, Versace's work remains so. There are no chips, cracks ordamage to the wonderful design or gold gilding. Please purchase on online
