Butterflies are the product of a remarkable transformation and the same is true of the decorative flair given to vintage tableware by designer Melanie Roseveare, the designer who started Melody Rose. Vintage ceramics are refired with new and vintage images to create quirky, bite-size pieces of art, some of which can even go in the dishwasher. The butterfly plate I bought is too beautiful to eat off, and is hung on the wall in my daughter’s bedroom.
After much success upcycling vintage tableware, Melody Rose has introduced a range of new fine bone china tableware, manufactured in Stoke-on-Trent. Pieces are gilded by hand and fired with designs from the Melody Rose collections.
Priced from £30, the products are available to buy online or at select markets and events, next up will be Tent London, which is running 19th -22nd September 2013, Old Truman Brewery, Hanbury Street, London, E1.
