tea cup and saucer
Considering the clean, modern lines of this wafer-thin tea service, it’s something of a surprise to discover that it was designed in 1928. Munich architect Wolfgang von Wersin named it Lotus, after the Far Eastern symbol for purity, and Nymphenburg (the premier name in porcelain) has been producing it ever since (plate, $180, cup and saucer, $410, creamer $480, sugar $720, teapot $1,020, by special order; cooperhewitt.org/shop, 212-849-8355).
