The Rothschilds Had the World’s Largest Private Fortune
The Rothschild family descends from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who started his banking business in the 1760s. During the 1800s the family possessed the world’s largest private fortune. Several lines of the Austrian branch were elevated to the nobility, and a line from the British branch was given two hereditary titles of Baron and Baronet. After the 19th century, the family’s wealth declined, but the Rothschild’s are still present in different range of fields, such as finance, energy, real estate, farming and wine.
The Family Fell in Love with the Bird-Patterned Porcelain
The Rothschild family fell in love instantly with the bird-patterned Herend porcelain, thus ordered the collection in the 1850s. The members of the Rothschild family were important Customers and “Patrons” of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory. The bird pattern was named Rothschild decor (RO) in honor of them in 1861.
The Birds Symbolize Love and Relationships
The diverse pattern constitutes of 12 different couple of birds, and it’s the nature lovers’ favourite pattern. The painted birds symbolize relationships, love and the two sexes finding each other. The couple of birds and the colourful butterflies and little bugs scattered around them create a real nature-like environment. Welsh princess Lady Diana also choose the bird-patterned porcelain for her wedding reception.
Blue and Green Are the Most Popular Colors
Today’s Rothschild decor can be created using a so-called fish-scale rim in multiple colors. The most popular colors are royal blue (RO-ETB decor) and light green (RO-ETV decor). One of the most joyful and lively patterns is the Rothschild Mayer (ROM) decor with blue, red, purple and yellow birds and trees. Modern pattern is also available, like Dream Garden (REJA) decor manufactured since 2009. Youngsters and nature lovers are often amazed by these simple but beautiful patterns.

From the first time I watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
