Black and white may be the hot colors in dinnerware, but few things are bolder than a flaming red dragon, which the Ming Dragon Dinnerware from designer Johann Joachim Kaendler proudly displays. The fine porcelain is hand painted, with gold edging on the plates. Because the dragon is traditionally portrayed either in the clouds or amidst waves, the dishes have a slightly scalloped outer edge and, in a slightly unusual touch, the coordinating teacup shows the same wave-like patter along its rim. Price, per 5-pc. setting: $958.
