As a wedding gift, my husband gave me a set of Rose Medallion china circa 1880′s.  The remarkable thing about it was the sheer number of pieces in each place setting (16!).  Those formal Victorians had both a lot of dishwashing help, and also a strange inclination to care that boullion be served in one kind of bowl and creme soup  in another.

Artist, Jan de Vleigher likes to go big when it comes to porcelain and these monumental paintings tell the tale.  No need for seconds.
