There is something about those charming bone china tableware pieces. From Victorian paintings to Aztec art or even the ones that relentlessly feature flora and fauna, exquisite tableware pieces have become a perfect add-on to a special dining experience. A number of homegrown labels have created their own renditions of beautiful tableware by experimenting with different materials such as wood, metal, and stoneware. While Good Earth never seems to disappoint with its edit of luxe bohemian tableware pieces, new and upcoming labels such as Baarique are pushing the boundaries with their painted brass pieces. Here’s a list of 7 tableware pieces we are loving this year.
Good Earth’s Rosa Bagh
Planning to infuse some colour in your usual dinnerware? These exquisitely crafted pieces by Good Earth make the cut. Made in fine bone china with hand-painted birds and floral pattern, resembling Persian miniature paintings, what makes the pieces more dramatic is the use of 24-carat gold detailing. A dinner plate-set, with its unique hue, evokes a sense of nostalgia and romance.

Amaltas Plate by Baarique
Redefining traditions, Baarique’s piece is a tribute to the past but with an apt amount of fun. Their Amaltas plates are not only a collector’s items but also offer medicinal benefits. Bacteria take time to thrive on brass as compared to plastic or earthenware, and water stored in a brass container has immense health benefits. What makes this plate one-of-a-kind is its painted floral pattern, almost 3D in its appearance. And the unfinished elements of the plate exude an old-world charm.
