Villeroy & Boch Amazonia
Amazonia Available Directly From Villeroy & Boch — Introduced in 2011. Villeroy & Boch Amazonia is an extravagant collection inspired by the fantastic world of the Amazon. Ever since adventurers and explorers the likes of Alexander von Humboldt or Charles Darwin began setting out for Central and South America in the late 18th and early 19th centuries to discover and investigate native flora and fauna there, people have had a fascination with the unbelievably diverse and colorful plant and animal world of the Amazon region. As a result, South America was stylized to a kind of botanical and zoological paradise. The colorful blossoms, the luxuriant vegetation and the rich variety of exotic species of animal made their way into European culture, where they remain familiar and popular motifs in works of art and decorative objects to this day.
Each item of the Amazonia collection tells its own, self-contained story and presents a most aesthetically appealing composition depicting the animal and plant kingdom of the Amazon. These perfect, true-to-life natural motifs, lovingly executed down to the smallest detail, are the result of extensive study of the animals and plants selected for the collection: breathtakingly beautiful hummingbirds and colorful heliconius butterflies, mesmerizingly blue passion flowers, yellow orchids and the red blossoms of the calliandra shrub are rendered so vividly in their urgent colorfulness and luminosity that they almost seem three-dimensional.
Suitable for intimate or large-scale occasions and crafted from premium bone porcelain, this durable, fine china is dishwasher-safe, but not safe for use in the microwave because of the gold accents.
