A 17th century engraving of Medusa’s head. Her blood was said to be magical: a deadly poison flowed from the veins of the left side of her body, while blood from the right side had the power to restore life. The reviving power of her blood was used by Asclepius to raise the dead. Our Medusa will certainly revive any interior – and any fly.
This ornate decorative plate, which the French call ‘vide-poche’, is a vessel you can use for all kinds of bits and bobs when you want to empty your pockets. It combines the delicacy of porcelain with a classic and solid form.
Decorated and finished with real gold, it is a perfect platter for jewellery, cosmetics or keys. It’s an object with personality, an essential detail of a contemporary interior. Functional and decorative. It introduces a touch of fairy-tale and of an eclectic French style full of lightness and witty humour.
It is perfect for places where bits and bobs accumulate on their own: on the console in the hall, in the bathroom, on the desk or table in the living room, and everywhere else where it will draw attention to itself, making the home far from monotonous. It also makes for an original birthday or wedding present.
