You all know them: Lenox, Wedgwood, Waterford, Herend. You also know the patterns that put them on the map: Lenox Urban Twilight, Wedgwood Williamsburg Potpourri, Herend Rothschild Bird and Waterford Ashling. But is that all there is too look at?
Truth be told, no. Times have changed. There are many, many smaller designers and china companies that carry lines of tableware that are modern, bold and stylish. For every price range and for every budget, boutique purveyors of tabletop items are as good if not better than the industry’s standard bearers.
Something to keep in mind when doing your shopping.
