Overview

The Gold Tea Cup was designed by Catherine Lévy and Sigolène Prébois for design brand Tsé-Tsé. This Tea Cup of irregular form is made in Hungary in fine white porcelain and is hand-painted. The interior is covered with a real gold enamel and the exterior is white glazed porcelain. The white color of the porcelain has a traditional slight hint of blue. The cup is cast following a traditional method. Carefully crafted, it is intentionally irregular: its imperfections are not defects, they are part of the design and make each piece unique. The porcelain is durable and impact resistant. The gold decor makes the cup precious and fragile and it is not safe in microwave ovens and should not be put in a dishwasher or washed with an abrasive sponge.

Catherine Lévy and Sigolène Prébois are the founders and designers of Tsé-Tsé Associées, a French design brand specializing in lighting, tableware and home accessories. Through the years, they have become known for their fierce creative independence. Inspired by their travels, they like to play with colors and to create unexpected associations, always with a hint of humour. Some of their creations have become iconic, like the April Vase, which has become part of the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou National Museum of Modern Art.
