We never shy away from putting seemingly disparate pieces together, if the colors work and they create that "wow!" effect. The cabinet is a high 50's re-interpretation of an art deco Chinoiserie chest of drawers. On top- the large regal looking gilded lamp is Italian ceramic. The busts are of Buddha by Gambone. All worlds working together in perfect design harmony.

These three tear-drop shaped ceramic vases measure from 5 1/4" (foreground) to 8 1/2" for the eggplant colored vase (rear). All are by Carl-Harry Stålhane for Rörstrand. I love the deeply saturated color of the glaze. They look light and delicate, but feel quite substantial in the hand.
