Gianni Versace. He was the internationally-renowned couturier who designed perfumes, leather collections, home interiors and even theatre and film costumes. His designs captured the spirit of prosperity and excess available to the lucky few, and transformed luxury into an image…
And this image is now recaptured by Rosenthal within the Versace collection – a range of dinnerware and accessories designed and inspired by this artistic name, and crafted by the very best porcelain manufacturers in the world.
When you think of Versace, chances are Medusa comes to mind. In Greek mythology, Medusa was depicted as a terrifying creature, her beautiful hair a nest of serpents; so awful to behold that her glance would turn a man to stone. But in the 19th Century, the legend of Medusa changed, and she was recast as a hero rather than a monster. For Gianni Versace, Medusa became a symbol of art, of philosophy…and of dangerous beauty.
Medusa Gala pays homage to Versace’s muse, rendering previous collections in a modern, opulent colour scheme of white and gold. Surely the most beautiful of the Medusa designs to date, the baroque pattern remains, as does the twenty-two karat gold. Upon a base of high quality porcelain, Medusa Gala is tremendously luxurious.
Versace Medusa Gala Vase features:
- Designed by Versace for Rosenthal.
- Made in Germany from high quality porcelain.
- Decorated with twenty-two karat gold accents.
- Beautifully presented in a black Versace gift box.
