Why We Love This

Glorious faience bowl, hand-painted in Gien's 200-year-old-Renaissance Fond Bleu pattern with cherubs, muscular males wresting garlands from the mouths of beasts, urns overflowing with fruit and greenery, crowns and cartouches, crests, and shields. Stamped "Gien" with the company's castle mark, used from 1938 to 1960.

About The Emporium Ltd.

In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying antique English and French furniture, art, crystal and porcelain. Moving to Los Angeles, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. She still buys only what she would want in her own home. Her philosophy is simple: "Always buy a piece you love. You'll find a place for it. But if you didn't love it at full price, don't buy it on sale. It won't withstand the test of time."
