A Sunday Brunch Fit for Royalty

Our Palma dinner service is set out for brunch, I'm guessing no pajamas allowed at this table! Palma is a reproduction of a dinner service, circa 1840, designed by Fyodor Solntsev, the great Russian art historian, who painted interiors for cathedrals and designed much of the Kremlin under the patronage of Tsar Nicolas I. This lavish decoration incorporates the elements of a plate owned by Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, dating to 1667 and inspired by the domes of magnificent mosques in Istanbul, Turkey. The center of the plate is reminiscent of Celtic patterns. Truly universal in its theme, this historic design seems contemporary, the mark of excellent design.
