Sea urchin tableware
My namesake store, Tiffany & Company, makes some truly beautiful diamond jewelry. But their tableware also happens to be quite exquisite as well, and these sea urchin bone china pieces--including a teapot, salt and pepper shakers, and creamer--have definitely caught my attention. The rough, dotted texture and pure white color give each piece a sophisticated yet modern aura. The fact that the collection was inspired by sea creatures known for their symmetry and spiny outer shell is truly reflected in the design. I would adore these pieces as part of my tableware collection in the future, but with a collection starting at $95, even the 2-inch shakers are rather out of my current price range.
