Rosenthal China, "Coins" designed by Raymond Loewy (1950s)
My mother's china is the opposite of my great grandmothers - which is formal. I never really liked mom's china until I got older and it really is my favorite. 24 carat gold in the circles, of sett by light grey circles; Replacements Ltd. calls it "Rhythm Shapes" Its simple. Its fun. Its clean. And it was designed by Raymond Loewy - the same man who designed Studebakers (and the Hoover logo, too!). We use this for parties and special occassions. My never had the coffeepot - found that on eBay for less than $40!
