Antique 24-piece export blue and white Canton dinnerware set, including six dinner plates, six soup bowls, six salad plates, and six bread plates. "Chinese Canton ware was shipped to Europe and America in the holds of cargo ships which resulted in its becoming known as "ballast ware." It became part of post-revolutionary American history, an age when New Englanders from Salem and Boston eagerly awaited their shiploads of porcelain from the Far East. The Canton blue and white-patterned dinner and tea sets were favored by George Washington as well as the merchant classes."
Ahmad Sardar and Andrew Galuppi travel a lot. From Timbuktu to Samarkand, or wherever their clients send them, they monopolize overhead bins with carry-ons full of market finds from the across the mosquito-filled globe. Their philosophy is a contemporary take on luxury in which the handmade and the artisanal play a pivotal role.
