From the Oriente Italiano collection, Iris. Iris is the color of wisdom that lends a crisp and delicate aspect to these marvelous plates. They can be placed beneath the soup plates, ready for the serving of your second course during a formal lunch or dinner, but they can also be used in your daily life to imbue each day with an added touch of beauty. Oriente Italiano is a vibrant collection of Antico Doccia porcelain tableware, tea and coffee sets and home décor items. It has emerged from a passionate quest for the colors and designs that has always driven us. Each item in the collection features the "carnation" motif borrowed from the ceramic tradition of Faenza, and is available in ten color varieties: Barium, Iris, Albus, Azalea, Vermilion, Mauve, Periwinkle, Malachite, Powder and Citrine. All of the porcelain pieces in Iris are finished with a lustrous trim of pure gold.
