Atomic Age Porcelain

A distinctly modernist moment from a classic porcelain factory. Germany's Fürstenberg has been in existence since the 18th century, and one would be right to assume most of their wares lean towards the traditional - rosette motifs and grandma's tea service and such. But, in the 1960s they created a modern line with a futuristic bent that we just covet. Alternating between yellow and rose gold are these Verner Panton-esque patterns. Eye-like on the horizontal and planentary on the vertical. Very cool no matter how you look at it!
