White porcelain is probably the design classic. Yet, at the same time, each dinner service is very different. There are dishes with punched holes; others look as though they have intricate inlay work; leaves and flowers encircle plate rims, or a porcelain string of pearls adorns the middle of a teapot. Such extraordinary handcraftsmanship can only be achieved with the extensive know-how of a traditional porcelain manufacturer such as J.L Coquet, Bernardaud, Sieger by Fürstenberg or Hering Berlin.
They create white porcelain pieces that while restrained in their colour are extremely exciting in their shape and feel. Their surfaces of biscuit porcelain or grazed porcelain are often so varied that one never tires of running your hand across their surface. You constantly find something new in them. White porcelain is never boring in terms of colour either. Just as snow displays innumerable hues, so does white porcelain. It is precisely this lack of colour that makes white porcelain so timeless.
