East meets West: Turandot Inspired by the opera of the same name by Giacomo Puccini, the Turandot décor is a homage to the 18th century chinoiseries, which already played an important role in the Rosenthal designs of the late 19th century. A lavish round dance of peony blossoms, bamboo and ginkgo leaves in delicate colours meets golden dragonflies. The source of inspiration for the poetic porcelain paintings lies on the shore of the West Lake in Hangzhou, China, which is shown in the interweaving of western and eastern elements.
Turandot is very enigmatic and full of beauty, building a bridge between East and West, past and present.

With this décor the colours are melted into the glaze at 1000 degrees C. Here the glaze softens and the décor sinks into it, thus making colour and luminosity indestructible. It is scratch- and wear-resistant. However, gold decors are not totally scratch resistant by virtue of their natural material properties. This décor was tested by the Rosenthal Institute for material technology (IWT). It is dishwasher safe.
