Shipping time 7 dni
40.00EUR

A sauce gravy made of porcelain coming from the now defunct porcelain factory "Wawel" in Wałbrzych, hand decorated in 1985 by a folk artist Edeltrauda Fornol.

The gravy boat is decorated with outstanding floral patterns created using a decorating technique typical of the Opole region in Southern Poland. The bottom of the gravy boat has been sighed to prove the authenticity of the work originaly made for Cepelia. Once decorated, the dish was once more fired in the temperature of 900 degrees Centigrade which gives the decoration permanence and makes it a fully usable dish. It should not, however, be washed in a fishwasher. 

Though this is a vintage product, it has never been used and was acquired directly from the artist. 

Dimensions:

height - 7 cm

length - 19cm

width - 11 cm


A vintage product is not the same as an old or second hand one though each of them was made at least dozens years ago. A vintage product is one we have chosen among countless similar ones that we deemed not beautiful enough. During each expedition we look not at dozens but at hundreds of rugs, tapestries, tableclothes, laces and other fabulous handmade products stored in the chests in various regions of Poland and Central Europe. In most cases they have never been used (though there are exceptions from this rule) in spite of their age. They come from old dowries, wedding gifts, things left by someone's grandparend or parents. Carefully chosen in the past, in perfect condition and yet they still don't all impress us to the same degree. Not every item that is beautiful or used to be beautiful in the past will charm, enchant us equally. Not every one will fit suit the modern interiors, be in accord with current trends, not every one is made with equal perfection. Every now and then, however, we come across a real gem; a magnificient cotton table cloth orm a tapestry more beautiful than all the others which, even though made 50 years ago hasn't even had a chance to get dusty as it was only taken out of a chest to be aired or to be shown to grand children. It is such treasures, carefully chosen from among hundreds of others that make it to the NoBoTak vintage cathegory. The cathegory of things that are most beautiful and certainly most unique.
