ATLANTA-The Vera Company is partnering with giftware company Enesco to produce a variety of gifts with the art of contemporary American artist Vera Neumann. Enesco's Vera line of gifts will debut to the trade this summer.

"It is wonderful to be partnering with Enesco to create a new collection of Vera giftware," said Susan Seid, president of The Vera Company.
