Rosenthal Sarastro Set
The “Magic Flute“ in Porcelain – Music plays an important part in the life of the Danish artist and designer Björn Wiinblad and creations are strongly influenced by his love of music. He decided to transfer his favourite opera by Mozart into porcelain, not only as a decoration but as a relief in porcelain. Every piece of the service depicts a different scene from the Mozart opera, with extremely wide plate rims for these scenes, Wiinblad tells the story of the opera in a relief with detailed figures and ornamentation.
The service possesses something so special that it is not apparent at first glance: a decoration on the underside of the porcelain, the text of the opera libretto of the scene depicted in the relevant porcelain relief, written in Björn Wiinblad’s ornamental handwriting and decorated with gold.
A further feature of this service: the relief surfaces are not glazed but smoothed and polished after the second firing in a highly elaborate procedure. This produces the delicate, matt effect of the relief forming a most attractive contrast to the glazed surfaces. Available in white and also in precious 24 karat gold named “Sarastro”.
The “Sarastro” Coffee set for six comprises of 22 pieces.
