by : Daniel Cheng

A gift is a good gift when it shows that you care enough for someone to give the person something that is just right for that person. It shows that you really know the gift recipient, that person's interests and hobbies, for example.

The serve ware from Arthur Court is excellent giftware because they serve a useful and universal function and do it in style. You can just focus on the theme that will appeal to the recipient.

The Arthur Court server ware range is tailored to different interests - with themes from nature, animals, lifestyle and seasons. So are the decorative items and religious symbols.

The products are also prestigious items that have the appearance of sterling silver ware (with far less trouble to maintain in a lustrous condition). They are made of cast aluminum hand polished to a brilliant luster.

More importantly, all items incorporate tasteful designs because a professional designer and an art specialist design them. Arthur Court worked for design and decoration firms for eighteen years before starting his business. Elena Court, his wife, studied Oriental art history and Modern art, and is now a part of the product development team.

The designs are derived from their vast collection of minerals and man-made artifacts. They travel all over the world and add to this collection.
