Alencon Rouge Dinnerware
Plain white dishes may showcase food but the Alencon Rouge dinnerware from L'Objet makes a more dramatic statement. The red plates are handmade in Portugal from white Limoges porcelain and are bordered with a 24 kt hand-gilded gold in an elaborate lacy pattern . The set includes both a soup plate and a deep soup bowl with two golden scrolled handles and something you don't get with grandmother's gilded china, a real mug instead of a coffee cup. The dinner plate sells for $160.
