Williamsburg to Showcase Licensees at Tabletop, High Point Shows
October 11, 2010,
WILLIAMSBURG, Va.-Williamsburg's various licensees will debut products at the New York Tabletop Show and the High Point International Home Furnishings Market this week.
In New York, Reed & Barton will extend the popular Williamsburg Farmyard Friends collection of baby gifts with a ceramic child's set and a musical carousel, both decorated with baby animals based on Colonial Williamsburg's rare breeds. Reed & Barton will also introduce the Williamsburg Apothecary Jewelry Cabinet inspired by a neoclassic medicine chest made in Piedmont, Virginia, around 1810.
At High Point, Global Views will introduce the Williamsburg Beaufort collection of ceramic urns in citron yellow, cream and chocolate. The popular Williamsburg Westmoreland line, based on a Virginia-made blanket chest in the Colonial Williamsburg collections, expands with a new Side Cabinet.
Sedgefield by Adams adds the Williamsburg Plum Blossom vase of delicately molded white porcelain and Asian detail to its collection. The piece is modeled after Chinese-inspired vases made in 1750 at the Chelsea Porcelain Manufactory.
Capel will introduce three Williamsburg rugs in transitional styles. A damask design in tufted wool is inspired by an 18th-century silk textile from the Colonial Williamsburg archives. Other new rugs include a tufted, loop hook inspired by a pinwheel motif from a painted folk art blanket chest and a braid design in spring colors.
