Hermès Cheval d’Orient #2

On an open steppe white with snow, amid tufts of new spring growth… horses gallop. Their silent cavalcade comes from a time beyond time. They gallop on a finely woven pattern of crimson and gold and intense blue, straight from the Orient of our dreams, as it appears in Persian miniatures. Free, joyful and sumptuous, these horses are there to challenge us, they are magnificently timeless, insolent and complicit in our mingling of cultures.

After acquiring a few more pieces, we decided to dress up the table to see how everything looks like in a proper table setting.  We have used all of the pieces many times but we have never set the table with all the pieces together.

So without further ado, here they are in a proper table setting.

Don’t they all look stunning?

I have a confession to make though. The first time we saw them we were only planning on getting the tea set. So much for that plan. I guess it has been a slippery slope after completing the tea set.
