Sieger Dinnerware

Opulent Siegel dinnerware

I have fallen in love with the cheery blue, red and white with gold BIRD accents dinnerware by Siegel, the My China! Emperor Rim line.

The dinner plate costs $240 EACH! *sigh*

How amazing it would look mixed in with plain gold and white plates and bowls. Maybe on a white gloss table. With a line of gold-glittered animals as centrepiece.

How do you set a table using pieces that are obviously meant to be admired and then cover them with food/soup?? I’d have a dinner party just to sit and admire the Siegel pieces and then eat off paper plates!

Does it bother you using your very expensive dinnerware? What if you had a set for six of the above plates? Would it be only for display? Would you mar its beauty with soup or a beef stew? Would it concern you to have steel forks, knives and spoons clang with it? Maybe serve with plastic utensils?

Me, oh my. I’d be happy using them once a year to have with people who appreciated beauty AND expense. Never around children. Maybe till they turn 25. Or not. Heh.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
