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…
He was Gianni Versace.
From Rosenthal comes the Versace collection – a range of dinnerware and
accessories designed and inspired by this artistic genius, 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, philosophy, and dangerous beauty.
Medusa Lumiére is the fitting name granted to Rosenthal and Versace’s
glass- and stemware range, wherein crystal is meticulously blown and
hand for an artful, luminous appearance. Versace’s frosted visage of
Medusa appears around the outside of this splendid coaster, masterfully
finished to hold your most privileged bottle of grange.

- Designed by Versace for Rosenthal.
- Made from 24% lead crystal.
- Decorated with the face of Medusa in frosted glass.
- Beautifully presented in a black Rosenthal gift box.
