Isn't this absolutely wonderful? A black and gold pagoda Chinoiserie etagere filled with lettuce ware with a backdrop of Chinoiserie wallpaper.
I have a miniature version of this etagere I turned into a Chinoiserie dollhouse. How many of you remember that blogger dollhouse debacle?
Lettuce ware - like by Dodie Thayer is crazy collectible and has been for decades. Tory Burch has a wonderful lettuce ware collection she did in collaboration with Dodie Thayer's estate. Lettuce ware has been hot since the sixties with people like the Duchess of Windsor, C. Z. Guest, and Jackie Kennedy Onassis and I know it is a Palm Beach thing as well. Mario Buatta's collection recently sold at auction for $48,000.
Do you collect lettuce ware? It does combine beautifully with Chinoiserie. Do any of you subscribe to Flower Magazine? I am thinking I should.
