Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch
A little package of green lettuce plates arrived this week and they were the perfect pick me up for this never ending winter. The plates are Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch and are part of a whole collection of pieces.
Dodie Thayer, The Pottery Queen of Palm Beach, originally started molding her Lettuce Ware pieces by hand on real pieces of lettuce and cabbage and sold them at Au Bon Gout in Palm Beach. The pieces from the 1960’s, collected by chic women like C.Z. Guest, Brooke Astor, and Bunny Mellon, have a paler color and handmade quality. They also fetch very expensive prices at auction so Tory Burch finally convinced the now 90-year old Dodie Thayer to collaborate on a new collection that is much more affordable.
The Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch collection would make a perfect table setting for Easter so here are a few display and entertaining ideas to get your stated.
Bon week-end !
