The "Idillio" design by Paul Wunderlich displays both the lightness of porcelain and its shimmering transparency. Characteristic for "Idillio" are slender, aspiring forms which spread out upwards with élan. This opening effect is further emphasised by the ellipse-shaped handles which tower steeply upwards. The smooth surfaces of the table service are suited ideally to the costly "Persis" décor. It is reminiscent of the tableware service designed by Björn Wiinblad in 1971 to mark the 2,500th year anniversary of the Persian Empire. The basis for this was the "Magic Flute" set, in which each element was decorated with an ornament from a famous Persian building. Gold-plating is applied intricately by hand to the plate rims resulting in a fine, filigree relief on the plates. The spouts and handles of the service elements are also gold-plated entirely by hand.
With this remarkable “Persis” décor, Rosenthal Classic demonstrates its competence in practising the craftsmanship skills of former times to meet with modern standards.
