With the Five Senses 'Centuries' collection by Barbara Schmidt and Andreas Meissner, old, historic handles have been affixed to modern tableware. This motley tea set is perfect for those who like the combination of heritage and modern, functional design.

The gold patterns on the Five Senses 'Centuries' collection are hand-painted, and the porcelain is made in Germany by KAHLA. Three handles from three periods of time and patterns that remind the viewer of old-fashioned coffee culture are combined with the modern Five Senses collection -- the first porcelain set with asymmetric saucers.
