Hallmark Cards was founded over a century ago by J C Hall, and since then the company has worked with the largest group of highly talented artists, writers and illustrators in the world. As a result, Hallmark has assembled one of the most extensive of art archives combining illustrations, writing, surface design and photography and this rich treasure trove is the source for the new ceramic gift collection, Parisienne Blue.
The intricate cobalt blue and white design is inspired by delicate French lace patterns from the early 20th century, which were first published in trade catalogues created by artisan makers in Villeurbanne. The teacup and saucer, teapot and other shapes in the Parisienne Blue Collection are available in complementary colourways that can be mixed and matched creating combinations to suit individual décor and taste.
The finishing stylish touch is that every piece is presented in a beautifully designed box with a handle, making Parisienne Blue an easy and instant gift choice.
The Hallmark Parisienne Blue Collection by Enesco includes a Cup & Saucer and a Teapot, in blue and white.
