William Yeoward Crystal’s English Bone China is in fine form in a feature imagining tables set by four iconic women called “Portrait of a Lady”, which appears in the July/August 2017 issue. Our Avington Charger in Lavender and Gosford Dinner, Dessert and Side Plates contribute to the fanciful look of this table, fit for Lord Byron’s daughter, Ada Lovelace, also known as the “Enchantress of Numbers” for her exceptional mathematical aptitude. The lavender hues in our china and other pieces in the setting echo Ada’s dress in the portrait, while the black and white background complements Ada’s white gloves and raven hair. Also appearing on this page is the jewel-like Pearl Liqueur Tumbler, exquisitely copper-wheel engraved with our Pearl pattern.
Elsewhere in the same issue, items from William Yeoward Crystal’s Country Collection appear in designer Kari McIntosh Dowdy’s home in a story called “Spanish Spice”. They are the Classic Cake Stand and Classic Cake Dome (sold separately), seen on a sideboard below a fabulous shell-encrusted mirror. The simple but elegant design of these pieces make any dessert look just a bit more special and enticing. Doesn’t that chocolate cake look delicious?
