Catch the Wave in Frankfurt

Villeroy & Boch's popular New Wave Cities Of collection continues to grow in popularity. At this month's Ambiente fair in Frankfurt, Germany, the company will introduce four cities, including New York, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Sydney, to the collection.


Portrait of a Lady

Celebrating its artistic heritage, French Limoges maker Bernardaud introduces its Portraits gift collection inspired by famous Classic or Impressionist artists, tweaked for the modern day. Edouard Manet's L'Olympia is one of several femmes featured.


Sky-falling for Jack

Jack, the Royal Doulton flag-draped figurine inspired by Winston Churchill and originally issued in 1941, made a star turn in the James Bond film "Skyfall." The appearance has inspired a relaunch as well as a new breed of bulldog figurines from the British tabletop maker.


History Uncovered

Historical American and European quilts that have rarely been seen in public will be on view next month at the Brooklyn Museum. Open from March 15 through Sept. 15, "Workt by Hand" looks at the social history aspect of quilting, and includes works that span two centuries of quilt making. Some of the featured quilts include symbols of the American Revolution, while others use vibrantly colored textiles that were newly affordable at the time of the quilt's making, such as this Crazy Quilt,  circa 1880.
