A fantastic 17th transitional Zhangzhou plate with the two pagoda scene. Great large size and highly collectable. These so called Swatow wares from the Zhangzhou province in China are know as "peoples wares" since they were not made for the emperor and not made in Jingdezhen. The decoration on Swatow ware is fantastic and freely done. Without strict regulations like on Jingdezhen pieces. #Swatow #Chineseculture #Ming #Qing #Porcelain #Charger #tableware #homedecoration #collectorsitem ..
#Thanksgiving to me is always a transitional holiday that celebrates the overall spirit of gathering and family during the holiday season. I created this simple and classic place setting with @birchlane rattan chargers, white plates, and berry branches. I think it could so easily transition to Christmas! #elementsofthanksgiving #birchlane #holidayseason #gather #tablescape #sponsored
